This document is presented for use in planning and constructing electrical wiring and equipment installations intended for connection to First Electric Cooperative's system.
The member or the member’s representative is encouraged to contact First Electric before any planning or construction takes place regarding the need for new electrical service or changes to existing service. First Electric strongly recommends the use of a qualified, licensed electrical contractor for all work.
