Before your new service may be assigned to our staking department we require that you provide the following:
- $100 Staking Fee – This non-refundable amount will be applied towards the cost of your construction.
- Application Form – This provides us with the necessary information to set up your new account.
- System Requirements Form – This provides us information about your irrigation or commercial load
- Street Address or County Fire Number – If you do not have an address for your new service location, call your County Planning and Rural Addressing Office to have one assigned.
Upon receipt of the above, the following steps will be taken:
- The staking department will contact you to arrange a meeting at the site to discuss your new service.
- After the meeting, the staker will complete the necessary paperwork and compute a cost estimate.
- We will issue contracts and determine whether a deposit is required. Signing of said contracts along with payment in full of the construction cost and the deposit will need to be made prior to commencement of the construction of your new electric service.
- After receipt of the contract and payment(s) if applicable, the job will be released to our line crew.
