Request to Relocate Electric Lines
Are you installing a pool or deck on your property? Are you remodeling, building an addition on your home, or are you doing some decorative landscaping around it? When doing such work, quite often the location of your existing electric service lines may not be the best for new construction plans. This is where NIPSCO can help. We can relocate electric services on your property where they will not interfere with your plans, while meeting all applicable safety codes.
Please make a request to relocate electric service, call 1-800-4-NIPSCO (1-800-464-7726). Place the order with a customer service representative for the appropriate address. Please note: There will be a payment required before the service can be relocated.
- Mark all private underground facilities
- (sprinklers, septic, etc.)
- Land or Lot is within 6" of final grade
- Clear path for routing of gas and electric lines
- Proposed meter location free of obstructions
- Notifying your engineer when the site is ready
- Electric or Gas load sheet
- Buried Hazards form
- Payments (if applicable)
- Inspections (if applicable)
Once you return the required documents, your engineer will be notified that the relocation can proceed. The engineer may require a Right of Way agreement and easement. Please refer to the Your Responsibility checklist as you prepare the site for readiness. Also be sure to refer to the Installation Requirements and Standards during this time. At this time, your engineer will also prepare for you the estimate to relocate your electric service. Contact your engineer when all site readiness requirements have been completed.
After the site readiness has been confirmed and all necessary payments received (if applicable), the engineer will release this project to be scheduled for construction.
PLEASE NOTE: The scheduled date may be recalculated if one or more of the site readiness requirements have been altered, or due to emergencies and inclement weather.
