Electrical Inspections

If your home or facility has not had active electrical service for one year or you are applying for service to a new home or facility, an electrical inspection must be performed before Kenergy can provide electric service.

Kenergy is prohibited from providing permanent electric service to a facility until a final certificate of approval (wherever applicable under state law or local ordinance) has been issued by a certified electrical inspector.

A fee is charged by either the electrical inspector or the local or state government for the inspection service. State law requires that homeowners secure from the health department in their county an on-site sewage disposal permit release before the electrical inspector is permitted to issue a certificate of approval for any temporary or permanent electric service extension.

Members who own manufactured homes should make sure they meet all state requirements for setting up the home.  To find out more about these regulations, members should call an electrical inspector in the county where the member resides.  Electrical inspectors know HUD Codes on mobile homes and will be able to assist.

National Electrical Code Handbook code booklets are available through electrical supply retailers.

Find an electrical inspector for your county.
