When installing a new electrical service, be it for a new home, garage, grain dryer, or camper pedestal, there is a series of steps that will make the process go much easier. You'll find that information here.
Starting a New Installation Project
When installing a new service, we need to work closely with you to meet your needs and to meet the applicable specifications and codes.
The first step, before you call, is to make sure you know where everything going. You should know the permanent placement of your electrical service, where your well and septic will be (if applicable), and your driveway should be staked in its permanent place before you give us a call.
When you're ready, we will set up an account for you and schedule an appointment for you to meet with one of our Staking Technicians at your property. They will determine a route and provide you with a written cost estimate. This must be paid in full and your electric socket installed and wired to a breaker box before we will proceed with the project.
After installing your electric socket, your electrician must complete an electrical contractor’s affidavit (which will be provided to you) and, if applicable, have the service inspected. Bypass meter sockets are required on all new services and electrical services will have to pass inspection (when required by law) before installation.
If the proposed route of power crosses a neighboring property, we will need to record a right-of-way easement. You are required to obtain permission from the owner of the neighboring land and get an easement signed. The easement will be provided to you by Dunn Energy Cooperative.

If you have any questions regarding dual fuel, electric vehicle chargers, or renewable energy, please contact Chris Marlett at (715)-232-6240.
Upgrading an Existing Service
If you are looking to upgrade the existing electrical service to your home, farm, or business, please call the office at 715-232-6240 to schedule an appointment to meet with a Staking Technician. Due to the fact that there are so many variables when upgrading an existing service, we will not be able to give you an estimate over the phone.
