How high is your electric...meter?

This high?

I took this photo somewhere between Quirino Avenue and Osmeña Avenue. It is a picture of a group of electric meters placed high on top of a wooden structure – approximately 20 or so feet high.

It is the second such structure that I have seen the other one was closer to the Aurora LRT. I keep seeing it when I ride the train to Cubao and the electric meters seem to be just on the level of the rails.

Some officemates say there is a device which Meralco uses to read these meters even at a distance; a kind of laser pointer thing. I sure hope such gizmos are true because if not it makes you wonder about your own electric bill if Meralco just guesses on meters they cannot read such as these.
