Builders & Contractors
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.
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.

Contribution in Aid to Construction
When new electric service generates enough revenue to offset annual expenses, NES installs the required electric facilities for free. Otherwise, a Contribution in Aid to Construction (CIAC) may be required. A refund can be requested within four years of completion if new customers are connected to a line extension. 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.
