Electric & Gas Trenching, Cable Laying and Utilities
The utility requirements vary greatly based on your site, distance from the road, electric company, gas company, propane company, etc. Electric: we will provide a temporary pole and box for construction power as well as the permanent electric meter base. You are responsible for getting the permanent power cable to your home. Usually this is underground and the service is provided by the electric company for a fee. If underground power is not an option, overhead service requires some extra components that we need to install and charge for. Natural Gas: It is an owner responsibility to make application for natural gas hookup. It is an owner responsibility for tap fee, installation of gas line and tracer wire, flexible riser, and meter mount. The meter mount must be installed by a licensed installer. This budget number should also include the anticipated cost of utilities during construction.
