Service Handbook & Forms
The information in the handbook is intended to provide electrical contractors, architects, building contractors, engineers and cooperative members with Okanogan County Electric Co-op requirements for residential and commercial service installations. The handbook provides most of the information and requirements. It does not include all possible standards or specifications required by Washington Department of Labor & Industries, state, federal or local code requirements. All conflicts between this handbook and Okanogan County Electric Cooperative’s policies shall comply with the most current policies approved by the OCEC Board of Directors. Revisions are subject to change without notice.
Members requesting a new service, reinstalling a retired service, increasing the size of an existing service or relocation of existing facilities shall assume 100% of the cost of the job. The member will pay in advance the estimated cost of the job, which will include estimated costs of labor, materials and overhead. Upon completion of the job an adjustment will be made when the actual costs have been determined.
Designing, scheduling and construction of the work will vary depending upon the complexity of the job, as well as OCEC’s workload. Contact your OCEC Engineering department for current scheduling information.
When requesting your service installation and to insure prompt service, it is important to provide OCEC’s Engineering department with all the information requested on the Request for Service and the associated checklist. When easements are required, they must be obtained before construction can begin or the service is energized.
