Keep losing power entire house.

I keep losing power like every 10 minutes or some and my neighbor is not affected. The power come back on by itself. The breaker panel is not tripped. The power meter is also out from the power company.

I also turned off air conditioner.....still doing it.
what would be the reasons of this power outages?

I don't know what this means, but you need to contact your power company, who will respond in short order. If they tell you that the power to the house is okay then you will need to contact an electrician.

I'm no electrician but my 1st inclination would be a bad meter/meter base. Power company would need to come out & check those.

Don't delay.
Call your power company now.
Tell them the power keeps going out on its own for the entire house. Tell them you noticed that the meter goes off also.

He probably has a digital meter that is powered off the power line.
If it's dead..... the power company needs to be notified.

As mentioned the problem will be inside the meter pan or in the line from the poco to the meter.

Call the POCO next time it goes off. If it's on when they get there just tell it came back on by itself.
