New Construction and Building

Wake Electric is here to help your projects flow as smoothly as possible.  Wake Electric will connect new service once all member obligations are met and any service-date delays or changes are proactively communicated.

  • Requirements for Land Developers and Builders:  Click here for a quick reference to builders or land developers for construction standards and expectations for electric service. NOTE: the requirements document is NOT the complete Line Extension plan.  All members, developers and builders are subject to the governance of the full document and it is highly recommended that the entire plan is reviewed to gain a complete understanding of the line extension policies of Wake Electric.  It is also very important for the builder and land developer to become familiar with the service construction standards and specifications listed on our website. If they are not followed there will be a delay in service until requirements are met.
