New Construction policies on BDRs
The following new construction policies on BDRs (temporary unmetered service) became effective January 1, 2005.
The cost of installing a BDR for building a new home is $210.00 for the first six-month period. If the BDR remains longer than six months, an additional $160.00 will be automatically charged. If you are also building at an adjacent lot and want the BDR to remain for the adjacent lot, an additional $160.00 will be charged for that lot.
Please note that the use of BDR's is limited to residential construction needs (not for wells, trailers, or any other domestic needs). Construction of large homes that need higher levels of power during construction or homes taking longer than one year to build will require a metered temporary service.
All requests for electric service will require addressing and appropriate billing information for the responsible billing party. Please contact construction services at 992-8558 to request service. We do not write service request orders from electrical inspection reports without receiving a customer call.
Upon connection of the permanent service the BDR will be removed, (unless we have instructions to leave it for the adjacent lot in a subdivision).
