New Construction/Service Change

Install service for a new commercial or residential property, plat development, lighting project, change your service from overhead to underground, or if you need your service moved.

Temporary Service Changes - Effective April 8, 2024

Beginning Monday, April 8, Connexus Energy will require that a separate application be submitted for temporary and permanent service. In addition, when applying for temp service you will be required to indicate the location of the temporary meter, submit the electrical permit, and submit the site ready photo by attaching them to the application.  

If the permit and photo are not sent in at the time of application, it will not be processed.  

If all requirements are met, the application will be processed, and an invoice sent within 24 to 48 hours. As soon as payment is received, the work order will move to Scheduling.

These changes will result in less delays and quicker turnaround times for temp services. It will also reduce the number of payments made and refunded if the temp is not installed.
