Installing Your Service

Scheduling Process

Construction schedules vary depending on size and scope of work. External factors like bad weather, emergencies or outages also affect construction scheduling. You'll be notified if your project is rescheduled due to these factors or if it's determined the site is not ready (see Site Ready Checklist).

If we need to perform digging, we'll contact Miss Utility to mark the existing public underground utility lines (e.g., electric, gas, cable TV, telephone, water). Miss Utility requires 2 days notice. Digging may then begin if all underground facilities have been properly marked.

Once requirements have been satisfied and your site is ready, we'll provide an approximate timeline electric service installation may begin.
