The following information is provided to assist you in obtaining electrical service to your new or altered service connection in a timely, trouble free manner.

If you are altering or installing a new electrical service connection (meter base), please follow the instructions below:
Guidelines for Obtaining New Electrical Service
1. Determine the size, type, and voltage of service desired (200 amp, 400 amp, overhead or underground, single or three phase, etc.). You may need to contact your builder or an electrician for this information.
2. Print, complete and sign a Customer Request for Service and an Application for Electric Service. Mail, fax, or drop them off at ED2’s office along with the appropriate deposit or letter of credit from a previous electric utility.
3. Once the above forms have been received, ED2’s field representative will contact you to schedule a site visit prior to preparing an estimate (Work Order Authorization).
4. District’s Line Extension Policy (General): Line Extension Policy
5. ED2 will notify you by phone or fax once an estimate (Work Order Authorization) is completed. Please note that this is an estimated amount only. Actual charges may vary depending upon the work site. You will be credited or billed the difference between the estimate and the actual costs. 6. Sign and return the Work Order Authorization, if necessary, and make arrangements to pay line extension costs.
7. Notify other appropriate utilities about the project, i.e. Telephone, TV, Gas, Water.
