To establish electrical service for a new residential construction, please refer to the process detailed below:
A United Power project manager/coordinator will review your application request once it has been received. After review, the coordinator will create a work order/design and send a design and cost letter to the applicant. Please allow up to 10 business days for the design and cost letter to be sent out. (Note: A coordinator may request a site visit prior to this letter being sent.)
Payment for services will need to be made up front.
Once payment has been received, a Right of Way (ROW) review can begin, if necessary. Once complete, the work order is assigned and scheduled by Operations. Scheduling can usually be made 3-5 weeks out.
Upon completion of construction, an electrician-installed meter housing will need to be inspected by the city and/or county. United Power installed pedestals will also need to be inspected.
After inspection, a meter release is sent to United Power and forwarded to Operations. It may take between 2-10 business days for meters to be set.
These are just cost estimations. Once job has been reviewed and a design is created, an accurate cost will be generated.
