What you need to know about inspections

You must request inspection prior to covering any electrical work, no later than three business days after completing the work or one business day after any part of the installation has been energized, whichever occurs first. Failure to request an inspection may result in civil penalties. See Electrical Inspection Basics for more information.

We will strive to get to your inspection within 48 hours of the date of the request. However, due to staffing reductions, it may take longer, especially if you are in a remote area.

Help us make the best use of our inspector's time and avoid penalty fees being assessed. Make sure we have the information to get the inspector to the jobsite and get the job done.
