Select Your Project Type:
Please follow the steps outlined to obtain electric service for the construction of a new residence, commercial business or subdivision. MVEA provides only electric service – you must contact the appropriate utilities to arrange for extension and/or connection of new water, sewer, gas, telephone, cable television service, etc.
Application for Electric Service
It is important that you contact the MVEA Engineering Department to complete the appropriate application and pay any applicable deposits and fees eight to ten weeks prior to the date that you desire connection of the electric service to ensure that your project is not delayed.
If you are considering purchasing property and would like a cost estimate for extension of electric facilities for feasibility purposes, a verbal “ball park” estimate can be provided by the Engineering Department. Contact the Engineering Consumer Representative. Please provide the complete legal description of the property.
Depending on the distance of your proposed building site from existing MVEA facilities and the type of electric service required, an extension of MVEA electric facilities may be required. Electric service will be provided in accordance with the terms of the current MVEA Line Extension Policy.
If you are requesting new permanent electric service and extension of electric facilities is required, you must complete the appropriate application and pay an applicable engineering (design) fee. If you elect to proceed with installation of the electric system, the engineering fee will be included as a credit in the overall cost of the project. If the project is cancelled, the engineering fee will be forfeited.
Your construction schedule should include allowance for a minimum of eight to ten weeks for design, cost calculation, payment of any required charges, acquisition of any necessary easement and/or rights-of-way permits, and for scheduling of construction of the electric line extension. The time required for completion of construction will vary with the size and complexity of the project, site conditions, material availability, MVEA work load, and weather.
