PPL Electric Utilities is here to help contractors connect new residential developments. There may be costs associated with joint trenching, moving PPL equipment or meters to alternate locations, or additional requirements. We recommend applying 6 months before service is needed.
For developments of 5 or fewer homes, you can use our Self-Service Work Orders tool: pplelectric.com/contractors. For larger developments, please work with our Business Accounts department by emailing email@example.com or calling 1-888-220-9991, Option 4. Each house in the development, as well as street lights, will need a separate work order. Remember that work will not begin until we have an approved plot plan. If the development layout is changed, there will be re-engineering costs.
Sign and return the underground trench agreement. 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 new facilities that affect property such as poles, anchors, conductors, transformers, and other equipment. Right-of-way
is also required if tree cutting or trimming is necessary. A permit may also be needed to work on your property.
