Not sure if you need an inspection? We can help.

If you’re powering a new home, reconnecting after a year without power, installing new meter centers or wiring, local law will likely require you to pass electrical service inspection before we can switch on the power for you.

Call the appropriate number below to schedule an inspection, if needed. Once approved, let us know and we’ll continue the process of delivering service. See below to determine who you should call, depending on your location.

Call before you dig

Any time you dig underground, you might be at risk of damaging buried utility lines. Before you dig, call your state’s One Call System to make sure you won’t hit any underground power, gas, water, or phone lines.

Don’t skip this step! It’s quick, easy, and could prevent costly or hazardous accidents.
