Looking at starting a new construction project with Inland Power? We would love to help you get going in this process and we are excited to serve your power needs.
We know this process can be stressful and there are many steps required to getting everything completed. That’s why we’ve provided a step-by-step list for a successful electric connection to help make sure your project stays on schedule.
Your step-by-step guide for successful electric connection.
1. Submit a completed Inland Power new construction application. Once we receive your application, we will send you a confirmation email and new member number. A member of our member experience team will call to schedule an appointment for you to meet with your staking engineer.
*Please note: Application information for your construction project will be held for one year. If progress has not been completed within a one-year timeframe, your job request will be cancelled.
2. Meet with your Inland Power engineer at the new construction site. This meeting is essential to go over job specifics and details. Please be sure to have the following information ready at the time of your appointment:
Proposed or existing structure location
Proposed or existing septic tank and drain field location
Proposed or existing well and/or water line location
Proposed or existing meter location
Location of any other existing or future structures on the property
3. After your meeting, your staking engineer will send you a job design and estimate within 3-5 business days; once they have all of the information they need to complete your cost estimate.
Your cost estimate will be emailed to you within one week of your appointment with your staking engineer. Your cost estimate is valid for 30 days.
4. If you would like to proceed with the new construction, you will need to submit payment to Inland Power and complete any final paperwork that may be needed. Once payment has been submitted, please allow up to one week to finalize the design of your job. Our dispatch team will contact you once the design has been finalized to see if your prep work is ready for inspection.
5. Once the inspection is completed, our dispatch team will call to schedule an appointment to install your power. This is typically completed within two-three weeks after your job site inspection has been completed.
Congratulations! Your site is now powered up and ready for construction!
We hope this quick overview helps with your new construction process. If you have any questions, feel free to contact our member experience team at (509) 252-4564 with any additional questions you might have.
