Before you get started with your line extension or relocation, make sure you have all of the information you need to keep you project on track. The information contained below is also available in the Line Extension and Relocation Checklist.
Steps for Green Mountain Power to build new overhead or underground line extensions:
- Call GMP at (888) 835-4672 or visit the local distribution designer directory for your local GMP Distribution Designer’s contact information to meet with a GMP representative at your site. Make note of the appointment details and contact information.
- If you want a telephone landline, please contact your local telephone service provider. If a telephone pole needs installation, please contact your telephone service provider immediately to reduce the time required to provide you with electric service. In some service areas, the telephone company sets the pole. If you do not need a landline installed, please contact GMP as soon as possible to avoid any delays in your process.
- Meet with us. GMP will meet with you or your representative at your building site to determine the construction required to serve you. Please bring your completed easement information worksheet or a copy of your deed to the appointment.
- GMP provides cost estimates, specification sheets, agreement, and easements.
- Review the Pricing Fact Sheet, including the charge for establishment of service, reallocation charge, and underground service cable charges.
- Return the following forms to your distribution designer:
- Estimate and payment
- Easements (signed by you and/or abutting property owner and notarized by a notary public), if applicable
- New Electric Service Agreement Note that the prices quoted in the agreements are subject to change if within three months of receipt. If you have any questions regarding the paperwork, please contact your designated distribution designer.
- Schedule service enclosure inspection. After all of the items listed in step 6 have been returned to GMP and your electrician has completed installing the metering socket, you or your electrician call GMP to inspect the meter. When all customer requirements have been inspected and executed in accordance with Vermont Electric Service Requirements, your distribution designer will schedule the job with our construction department and provide you with your next contact point.
- GMP pushes your project to scheduling.
