The following documents are required for any new electric service.
Once we receive the application for service, and load checklist and site plan, your project will be turned over to a Distribution Design Technician to visit your site and measure to your specified meter location.
Within 7-10 days, you will receive written confirmation from us that your new electric service has been designed, along with an itemized invoice. Included with the invoice will be an excavating permit and any additional paperwork that is required prior to scheduling your new electric service installation. Submit your construction fees, completed excavating permit, and any additional paperwork you were provided.
What is the Excavating Permit?
Contact your electrician to install a meter socket (200 amp minimum size for underground service to accommodate 4/0/ Al. wire, minimum of 14” tall x 11” wide.)
After your meter socket has been installed, you will need to schedule an inspection. State law requires that your meter socket must be inspected before we can schedule your project. A list of inspection agencies is available on our website at www.acecwi.com/new-construction under Helpful Resources. The inspection agency needs to complete and submit a wiring affidavit to ACEC. A wiring affidavit can be found on our website under Helpful Resources.
After all forms, fees, and inspection have been received, your job will be completed within 2-3 weeks.
Questions? Please call (800) 831-8629 between 7:30 A.M. – 4:00 P.M., Monday through Friday or email us at email@example.com.
Pre-Construction: The electric service installation path must be at least a 10-foot wide path for us to get service to your meter. The ground around your new service location and the flagged route must be within 4 inches of the final grade so the underground wire is properly protected after installation.
Post-Construction: Normally a large Caterpillar-type trencher is used along with a tractor-style backhoe to install your electric service. After installation is complete, we will backfill excavations in preparation for the final grading done by you, your builder or landscaper. ACEC is not responsible for final grading.
