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.
To increase the accessibility of charging options for electric vehicles, United Power will provide direct rebates to homebuilders when the electrical infrastructure for EV charging is included in new home construction.
“Make-ready” wiring means that all necessary electrical infrastructure - including all conduit and wire - is pulled to the station location and a NEMA 14-50 outlet is installed to operate a Level 2/240 volt electric vehicle charging station.
The NEMA 14-50 outlet should be installed in the garage, ground-side-up, and in a location accessible to a charging station mount and parked vehicle.
All electrical must adhere to NEC and local electrical codes and pass final inspection. Rebates processed once inspection release is received by United Power.
