Electrical Inspection FAQ

Anytime you install, enlarge, alter, repair, remove, convert or replace any electrical system an electrical permit and inspections are required.

Electrical permits are not required for minor repair work, including the replacement of lamps or the connection of approved portable electrical equipment to approved permanently installed receptacles.

A homeowner can apply for the permit and do the work themselves only on a home they currently occupy or are about to occupy (new construction). Commercial projects, apartments and rental units require an electrical contractor to apply for the permit and to also do the work.

Contact your local power company for the requirements for a disconnect and reconnect. An electrical permit and inspection is required though.
