Electric Inspections

A county-approved electrical inspection must be completed and LCEC must be notified before electric service can be turned on for:

  • A newly constructed home or business
  • A newly wired home or business
  • A home or business that has been vacant for a period of time

The electrician or builder is responsible for arranging for the electrical inspection and verifying that LCEC has been notified when it is complete.

Builder Safety

Rules for electrical safety when in close proximity to power lines:

Maintaining a safe distance from power lines is everyone’s responsibility. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) regulations require that you maintain at least 10 feet from any power lines energized at 50,000 volts and below. Additional clearance is required for any power lines that are over 50,000 volts. OSHA also requires that all electrical lines be considered energized unless otherwise proven by the owner or electrical company.

Planning ahead is the key to a safe work environment. Prior to starting a job, determine if you will be within the 10-foot safety area. If you will be working in close proximity to our electrical lines and want to discuss options, as early as possible, notify the Business Accounts Team at: (239) 656-2300. We will then generate a work request and have a representative contact you to discuss options and to provide an estimate.
