New Construction

Please follow the steps outlined on the following pages to obtain electric service for the construction of a new residence, business, apartment building, or residential, commercial or industrial subdivision.

United Cooperative Services only provides electric service – you must contact the appropriate utilities to arrange for extension and/or connection of new water, sewer, gas, telephone and cable television service, and to coordinate installation of other utilities
with United Cooperative Services facilities.


Contact United Cooperative Services

It is important that you contact United Cooperative Services prior to the date that you desire connection of electric service to ensure that your project is not delayed. If you are unsure whether your project will require a United Cooperative Services application, please contact one United Cooperative Services’ Customer Service Representatives.


Line Extension

Depending on the distance of your property from United Cooperative Services electric facilities, and the type of electric service required, electric service may be readily available or service may require extension of United Cooperative Services facilities. If there are no United Cooperative Services electric facilities within 125 feet of your proposed building site, extension of United Cooperative Services electric facilities will most likely be required. Electric service will be provided in accordance with the terms of the United
Cooperative Services Electric Line Extension Policy.

Your construction schedule should include allowance for a minimum of four to eight weeks for design, agreement preparation, payment of any required charges, acquisition of any necessary easement and/or rights-of-way permits, and for scheduling of construction of the required electric line extension. The time required for completion of construction will vary with the size and complexity of the project, site conditions, United Cooperative Services workload, and weather.
