NOTICE: Effective April 24, 2014, PEC-approved meter sockets are not required to be stamped by the manufacturer with the PEC logo. Contractors and electricians may find PEC’s approved meter sockets by contacting one of the cooperative’s district offices or by visiting one of these area home improvement stores.

  • PEC is in compliance with the National Electric Code (NEC) and the National Electric Safety Code (NESC). For your protection, PEC urges you or your electrician to use only NEC-approved procedures and materials.
  • PEC does not inspect temporary meter loops or temporary service construction and assumes no liability for any damages or injuries from their construction. PEC will refuse service where a known hazardous condition exists and/or if connections do not meet the specifications outlined in the following documents.
  • We urge you to use a qualified electrician to prevent safety hazards, additional costs and delays. PEC requires that all construction meets or exceeds these specifications prior to service connection.

If you have any questions, please call our toll-free engineering/planning line at 877-372-0391 and select the district office closest to your construction location.
