Starting a project¬† off on the right foot is very important. Whether you’re building a new home, developing commercial property, altering an existing service or installing a mobile home, PenLight’s Engineering Services can guide you through our requirements and help you avoid those unwanted problems. When you are ready to connect your new service, we will be there to help you plan your project all the way through.

Prior to energizing services, PenLight requires that:

  • all fees are paid in full, with
  • an L&I permit, inspection, and verification of L&I compliance.

Temporary Service

Temporary services are used for construction purposes only. Once the construction project is completed, the service will need to be disconnected and removed. This service is not intended to be used for RVs, pumps, etc. The electrical permit for a temporary service expires 12 months after the issue date.

PenLight requires that all new permanent services be installed underground. This service standard is part of our efforts to underground our distribution system and increase power reliability. Requirements for meter base locations, conductor sizing and length of service must be adhered to.
