Temporary electrical service is defined as a means of supplying electricity to a construction site while provisions are being made for permanent electrical service. In most instances, temporary service is required prior to the installation of the permanent electrical system. The cost of installing and removing transformers and/or high voltage lines for the sole purpose of providing temporary service is to be paid by the customer requesting service.
Temporary electric service may be either un-metered or metered. Un-metered temporary service is intended for incidental power requirements related to construction (interior lighting, saws, compressors, painting equipment, etc) of residential single family dwellings. In all other cases, metered temporary services are required; including: powering heating systems, area lighting, construction buildings or recreational vehicles.
