If you're adding or changing your electrical load, we need to know to make sure you get the power needed.
This includes remodeling, changing out your electrical panel, or changing the type of electrical service to your property. Before you or your electrician do the work, please fill out an application for altered service. Depending upon the complexity of the job and number of applications we’re working on, this may take between two and eight weeks, so plan ahead.
PUD 3’s engineering staff is specially trained to design a safe, legal, and cost-effective plan to connect your new home or business to PUD 3’s clean, reliable electric grid. Because there are so many variables, we do not give “rough estimates” for specific jobs.
All customers must submit an application for electrical service in order to receive a cost estimate.
This handout may offer a better explanation.
PUD 3 may have rebates available for upgrading the energy efficient of your home or equipment during a remodel. Call the Conservation Department at 360-426-0777 to learn more.
NOTE: If your remodel requires a permit to bring the building up to code, some rebates may not apply.
