Install New Electrical Service

ALERT: Material Shortages and Supply Chain Crisis Causing Delays

The electrical industry is facing a nationwide supply chain crisis. While full payment for a customers proposal will secure today's pricing, it does not guarantee that material is available when the customer is ready. Workorders released material packaging will be prioritized by material availability, amount/type of material required, and customer readiness. All of this means that construction schedules may be severely delayed. Read more about our Material Shortages and Supply Chain Crisis here

To have electricity installed to your property you’ll submit an application for new service. 

You can find a list of PUD 3's Engineering Specifications & Policies and our Service Rules & Regulations in the Document Archives.

All customers must submit an application for electrical service in order to receive a cost estimate.

  • PUD 3 must have access to the meter every month.
  • The meter base must be installed on the outside of the building, where it’s easy to get to.
  • Don’t put the meter base in these locations:
    • Over 5 feet off the ground
    • In a carport or other places that may be enclosed later.
    • In the same area that your dog will be kept.
    • Anywhere you want absolute privacy.

Customers who have disconnected or reconnected their power without proper authorization and/or have tampered with the meter, or had their seals cut will be billed a minimum tampering fee plus actual costs. (See the Fee Schedule A for current meter tampering fees).
