New service installation

New service installations may be subject to a $125 fee.

Fees and deposits

Your account may be subject to a deposit. If your account requires a deposit, the deposit will be credited back after paying on time for 12 consecutive months, or it can be credited to the final bill upon closing the account.

If your account is a new service installation more than 200 feet from the road, a line-extension fee will be calculated per-foot for overhead and underground options. Overhead options may require a site meeting to determine the exact cost.

Here’s how to estimate your installation costs, assuming normal conditions, without interruption by trees, streams, river crossings and other obstacles:

Distance from road, in feet Underground cost* Overhead cost
0-200 $125 $125
300 $5,125 $2,125
400 $5,625 $2,740
500 $6,125 $2,850
600 $6,625 $3,490
700 $7,125 $3,600
800 $7,625 $4,240
1000 $8,625 $4,460
2000 $13,625 $7,675
* Please note that for underground installations, Consolidated staff will backfill the ground cover but does not reseed or otherwise restore the ground to original condition.

Meter installation

Meters will be installed on a Consolidated Co-op-owned pole or pedestal. Unfortunately, we can’t install a meter on any type of structure, including a house, barn, or other pedestal. We also can’t connect to a temporary meter.

You can expect your meter installation about two to four weeks after fees have been paid and any easements are recorded. That timeline depends on the distance of the line extension and the weather.
