If you're in the process of or planning to build a new home, we ask you to contact us immediately. Installing your new electric service takes time, and you may even need to meet with our engineering department on site to discuss specifics. Doing so can help advise the new home builder with budgeting costs.


So that we may better serve you with your electrical needs, when requesting electric service please provide vital information such as owner's name, mailing address, property location including legal description (subdivision, block/lot number), physical address and electrician's name.

In addition, the following information will be required:

  • Hancock-Wood will figure costs of primary and/or secondary and prepare an estimate for new service after meeting in the field with an engineering representative.
  • Upon receiving the signed application and fees, Hancock-Wood also needs a copy of the building permit and any signed right-of-way easements that may be required.
  • Line construction and/or temporary construction will be scheduled upon receipt of the contracts, fees, building permit and easements.
  • Meter location must be approved by Hancock-Wood before a meter socket will be issued or permanent service connected.

Effective December 18, 2015, the Hancock-Wood Electric Board of Trustees approved a new Line Extension Policy to ensure all extensions are subject to the availability of adequate capacity, voltage and Co-op facilities at the beginning point of an extension. See it here:
