Whether building a new home or upgrading your electric service, PPL Electric Utilities is here to serve your needs. There is generally no cost for new or upgraded service, with the exception of placing power lines underground or requests to move electrical facilities from our designer’s plan. We recommend applying at least 9 weeks before your new service is needed.
PPL offers a Self-Service Work Orders tool that helps you submit and track requests for electric service work. To get started, you’ll need to register for the portal at pplelectric.com/contractors. Create and manage your work order, whether at home, the office or the job site. Track your
work order with email notifications, and see what requirements are outstanding.
Your PPL designer will review your application and contact you within a week of submitting a completed application. Your designer will create your plan and contact you with any estimated fees.
A right-of-way agreement is required before PPL can install any new facilities that affect property such as poles, anchors, conductors, transformers, and other equipment. Right-of-way is also required if any tree cutting or trimming is necessary. A permit may also be needed to construct facilities to your property.
