Adding A Meter/ Unit?

we have a building with about a 7 foot basement.

what is the process for having PGE add a meter on the building to provide a separate electrical bill here?

there is no address, but there is a front door. can we just put a .5 or a B address on the door? do you need to clear it as living space with the city first? what is that process?

By all means check with the local authorities. They will assign you an address, sell you a permit, and increase your taxes (now you have a multi-family dwelling with a different tax base). They will require special fire protection, certain ingress and egress specifications, and it goes on. Good luck with it.

All of the above!!!!

Why do you need/want another meter? there are other options if you want to rent space (other than living space), a sub panel with an electronic meter, then you can by pass all those (porkbelly) FEES(TAXES).
