The Standard for Electric Installation and Use
United Power’s Service Installation Guide Standard for Electric Installation and Use document is intended for members, developers, electricians and customers to review and gain an understanding of United Power’s standard operating practice. This document contains the requirements and standards necessary for both our members and United Power to safely and efficiently provide reliable electric power and outstanding service to our members. This document speaks specifically to the installation, rules for providing service and quality of service issues. We have attempted to ensure that all the standards are in compliance with the National Electrical Code, The National Electrical Safety Code and accepted industry practice.
New, rewired, altered, or repaired wiring installations intended for connection to United Power’s distribution system shall comply with the standards of United Power, the National Electrical Code and any other codes or regulations in effect in the area served. United Power does not assume the function of inspecting members’ wiring for adequacy, safety or compliance with electrical codes. Such responsibility to coordinate the inspection remains with the member and inspectors.
Questions concerning large and/or complicated electrical projects should be directed to a United Power Project Coordinator in advance of construction and/or purchase of equipment. This will reduce the risk of project delays or expensive changes during construction.
