Let’s get this project started!

Second…be sure you are familiar with our Requirements for Electric Service Connection manual.

Then…Complete and submit your application online. Review application requirements


Next…We will process your application and assign an Electric Service Representative to your project. Applications are typically processed within four (4) weeks, however larger projects may require up to six (6) weeks.

A representative will contact you to schedule a pre-design meeting and ensure all application requirements are met.

During the pre-design meeting, your Electric Service Representative will provide you with an approved electrical service location and explain any additional requirements.

Now you are ready to proceed with your project.
