What you need to know about inspections

You must request inspection no later than 3 business days after completing the work or 1 business day after any part of the installation has been energized, whichever occurs first.

Failure to request an inspection may result in civil penalties. See "Electrical Inspection Basics" for more information.

We will strive to get to your inspection within 48 hours of the date of the request.
