Before Setting Up Appointment

Before installation of new electric service, we need to meet with you at your property for the purpose of routing the line. Prior to scheduling an on-site visit with a Barron Electric representative, the following must be completed:

  • Hole dug for concrete foundation
  • Meter site determined
  • Septic system site and well site determined
  • All paperwork COMPLETED IN FULL prior to scheduled appointment


The new service cost to an improved lot (well, septic, OR foundation in place) is $500, plus $5.00/ ft for single-phase. Multi-phase service extensions will be charged $700, plus a rate of $7.00 per foot.

The new service cost to an unimproved lot is $700 plus $7.00/ft. for single-phase. For three-phase, a $1,300 fee will be charged plus $13.00/ft. (The cost is the same whether an overhead or underground service is selected).

If a paved road needs to be crossed, there is an additional $400 per crossing fee charged.

For improvements to lots where water crossings on lakes, rivers, or rock areas are involved, the fees will be based on time and material.



The following MUST BE COMPLETED before your service can be scheduled for installation. Please note that if these items are incomplete, delays will result in having the electric installed.


A trench must be furnished by landowner to underground services requested after November 1st due to frost conditions. Call Digger’s Hotline at least three days before beginning a project at (800) 242-8511 or 811.
