This is in the business district, such as it is, for Hilo Hawaii. It's a pretty small town, I think there around around 40,000 year-round residents here. These boxes are the meters for some businesses. The meters tell the electric company employee who inspects them how much power a particular customer is using. I think the clear/yellow tags are some form of tamper-evident seal the company places on the boxes to prevent any funny business with the numbers.

Ah thanks for the explanation. I like the photo, but I too didn't quite understand what it was
