Temporary Electric Service
Starting off on the right foot is important for any project. Whether you're building a new home, developing commercial property, altering an existing service or installing a mobile home, PL&W's Engineering Department can guide you through our requirements and help you avoid those unwanted problems. We will be there to help you plan your project all the way through when you are ready to connect your new service.
PL&W requires an application, L&I permit and inspection and verification of L&I compliance prior to energizing these services.
Temporary services are used for construction purposes only. Once the construction project is completed, the service will need to be disconnected and removed. This service is not intended to be used for RV's, pumps, etc. Contact PL&W's Engineering department to verify new temporary electric services be installed underground. Please refer to our "Electric Service Application" for installation specifications and requirements.
PL&W requires that all new permanent services be installed underground. All service conductors must now be installed in conduit. The conduit increases cable life expectancy and allows us to pull new cable if the existing cable fails. Requirements for meter base locations, conductor sizing and length of service must be adhered to.
