But Ma, He started it! :-) I said long ago that I believe what they have been telling me here, that the meter measures true power and not high leg power X 2. But the idea is valid that if they measured high leg power X 2 then you could save some money by balancing the load. Others pointed out that it would be illegal to charge based on high leg power but a little fine print would probably take care of the legalities. I have a better understanding of utility power meters now, and agree that they are not basing the power on the high leg. But yet I'm accused of arguing that I believe the power meter measures based on high leg power. I don't believe that but I questioned it based on what a friend heard. It's BS, no problem, I gave that up about as soon as the replies came in.
