Builders & Contractors



Nashville is hard at work. NES has several contractors completing projects within our service area. Get more information about what to look for if you have questions about crews working near you.

We understand how important it is to meet your construction and scheduling needs. By contacting us early in the building process, we can perform our design engineering, equipment and materials procurement and utility construction by your "in service" completion date.

Changes to Fee Structure

NES' fee structure for new electric service has changed. Learn more about the revised fees.

Apply for Residential Subdivision

Read the following instructions for obtaining service to a residential subdivision. Once you’ve submitted your application and it has been approved, we’ll provide a single point of contact for the duration of the project.

Underground Distribution

Metro’s Underground Utilities Ordinance (BL2005-628) requires lines to be buried underground in all new residential developments. Underground distribution improves the appearance of subdivisions and creates more attractive streetscapes. It also eliminates the need for tree trimming and reduces the number of power outages.

Preferred Partner Network

The Preferred Partner Network is a list of qualified general contractors, architects, engineers and others who support TVA's energy efficiency programs. Learn more about becoming a member.

Contribution in Aid to Construction

A Contribution in Aid to Construction may be required when new electric service does not generates enough revenue to offset annual expenses. New customers must provide all necessary easements, rights-of-way and tree trimming permission and rights to NES before any line extension is constructed or service is provided.
