Seasonal installation

We install electric and natural gas service year-round. Installation prices are based on normal construction conditions. Additional charges apply from Dec. 1 through March 31 for the following reasons:

Site conditions

  • Mud, ice and frost make it harder to move equipment around.

Weather conditions

  • Colder temperatures, as well as snow, rain, sleet and brisk wind chills, make schedules less predictable.

Working conditions

  • Shorter daylight hours, less time for crews to work. Additional wear and tear on equipment and vehicles.

To avoid additional charges, we offer two installation options

Option 1: The completed and signed Ready for Service card(s) for electric and/or natural gas service needs to be submitted to We Energies on or before Nov. 30. By submitting the card, you are verifying that all service requirements listed on the reverse side of this brochure have been met.


Option 2: Request your electric and/or natural gas facilities to be scheduled for installation during the weeks following March 31.

To keep you on schedule

It is very important to have your site ready when we arrive to install your service. Your site is ready for electric and/or natural gas service after you complete all of the following:

Electric and natural gas ready for service requirements

  • Locate, mark or expose any buried obstructions or underground facilities, such as a well or underground yard lighting, with stakes, spray paint or flags.
  • Clear a minimum 10-foot-wide path along the service route from the property line to the meter location.
  • Make sure dirt piles, construction materials and other things are not in the way.
  • Ensure the ground around the home and along the service route are within 4 inches of final grade.
  • Send permits and easements to us along with signed sketch (if applicable) and payment (if applicable).

Additional natural gas ready for service requirement

Desired meter location must be marked on a built or framed wall with a flag, stake or spray paint.

Additional electric ready for service requirement

Install meter socket at agreed-upon meter location. Electrical inspection must be received before service can be energized.

Final ready for service installation requirements

Complete and submit your electric and/or natural gas Ready for Service form(s) to us.

After we receive the Ready for Service form(s) and all other requirements are met (permits, easements, etc.), we will schedule the installation. If applying for both electric and natural gas service, the installations may be scheduled separately. Electric service will be energized after payment and municipal inspection are received.

In early spring, weather conditions, road weight restrictions and a work backlog may create installation delays.
