PPL’s meter does not measure how much electricity your solar panels or other system produce for your use…

…But Ephrata Borough’s second meter does. BTW a second meter in Pennsylvania is not required unless the customer agrees to it.

§ 75.14. Meters and metering.

 (a)  A customer-generator facility used for net metering must be equipped with a single bidirectional meter that can measure and record the flow of electricity in both directions at the same rate. If the customer-generator agrees, a dual meter arrangement may be substituted for a single bidirectional meter.

In my opinion if the Boro took a bad beat then they could tax more on the second meter and the customer would receive less. Much like a PCA indicate one meter and I believe it is to eliminate monkey business.
