Contract and Deposit (if applicable)
Call us or complete the online application to start the process for a new service. We’ll create a contract for you to sign which can be sent via DocuSign or USPS. If a deposit is required, this needs to be received before your service can be moved to the next step. Deposits can be paid by check, card or cash.
Once your service has moved on to be staked. Please allow approximately 2 weeks, weather permitting, for our staking engineers to come and stake the service. You can request for our stakers to call you to discuss placement of the service poles.
Once your service has been staked it will move on to our Construction Crew. Please allow approximately 2 to 5 weeks, weather permitting, locates, and order material, for our line crew to build your service.
Even though your service has been built it may not be energized yet. The reason for this is because Highline cannot energize a service until it has been inspected by the state electrical inspector. The state inspector should be contacted by you or your electrician. Once the service has been inspected and passes, Highline receives notice from the state inspector giving us permission to release the meter and energize the service. Contact information for your state’s inspector can be found below:
