Apply for Construction of New Service
If you need electric service extended to a new service location that has not existed before, you may request that service here. This includes newly constructed homes and businesses.
Constructing any type of structure (including buildings, decks, sheds, garages or pools) near or under power lines can be a costly and dangerous proposition. It can also mean unwanted delays in project completion. Meeting with Citizens Electric well in advance of construction and updating CEC personnel on building progress is the key to having permanent electric service when you need it. Please keep in mind that weather conditions and work load may cause delays.

Bring your property description and all electrical load data to the building site meeting.
Payment of deposit, if required, must be paid prior to construction.
Call 8-1-1 prior to any excavating, the national dig number.
