Electrical Work

Planning on changing or upgrading the electrical work in your home?

When do I need a Permit?
Electrical permits are needed when installing or altering electrical service, wiring, or circuits in existing buildings. Examples include but are not limited to:
  • Installing a new or temporary service
  • Modifying existing service or circuits
  • Relocating an electric water heater, furnace, or other electrical appliance
  • An electrical plan may also need to be reviewed

Electrical permits are NOT required in the following cases:
  • Appliance replacement without modification to electrical circuits, such as dishwashers
  • Appliances connected to outlets with a plug
  • Repair or replacement of motors, transformers, appliances, recessed or other light fixtures, switches, or control devices of the same type and rating in the same location
  • Taping joints
  • Removal of electrical wiring
