New Construction/Builders

New construction procedures apply to the construction or installation of a new facility that does not yet have electric service. New homes and businesses where construction has been completed and electric service has been installed are not considered new construction from an electric service standpoint. Consumers requiring electric service at these locations should visit our Start/Transfer Service page for information on how to obtain new electric service.

For commonly asked questions about new construction, see our New Construction FAQs.  Please also read our Builder Developer Handbook for additional information.

Extending Power to a New Property

When an individual contacts the association regarding new construction, a work request will be opened. To begin this process, please contact Engineering Services at (800) 332-9540 with the property owner’s information, legal description (subdivision with filing, block and lot or township, range and section) and service address (if available) for the property. A Contract Authorization form will need to be completed and submitted along with the applicable design fee. The work request will then be issued to an engineer. The engineer will contact the owner or the designated project manager to schedule a site meeting.

Development Letter

By Colorado law, the developer must acquire a letter of agreement from the utility in connection with local land use applications. The Engineering Department will evaluate the project and respond to a “will serve” letter request.
