It is the owner's responsibility to locate and expose their private lines before construction takes place. All markers need to be intact when construction happens. Any water lines buried deeper than 48 inches do not have to be exposed. The cooperative is not responsible for damages to private lines such as cable TV, satellite, private electrical, water, well, sewer, telephone, gas, lift station pump lines, underground dog fences or sprinkler system lines.
It is the applicant's responsibility to obtain and clear right-of-way.
Applicants will pay for the cost of all permits and/or grant of easements required for this electric service and will help obtain any permits and/or easements necessary to construct the line.
This type of work will be done as construction crews are available. Emergencies, such as outages, maintenance, road moves, and other necessary line construction will have priority over construction of services.
All construction cost quotes are valid for the current construction season, January 1 to December 31, and do not include any membership fee or deposits that may be due.
Frost charges of an additional $7.00 per foot with a $500 minimum will be applied to all underground services installed between November 1 and May 1 of each year dependent on MnDOT road restrictions.
If the service cannot be energized at the time of construction, a meter reconnect fee will apply at the current reconnect rate. Any work in addition to energizing that cannot be completed will be considered a Service Improvement or New Relocation of Facilities and subject to the current rates.
Services are energized at the time of construction. Billing for the monthly access charge will begin once a new service has been built and will continue for a minimum of 12 months. The access charge will be billed according to the current rate structure regardless of any energy used.
Disconnection of a new service may be made after one year of continuous service. If a member requests disconnection prior to one continuous year of service, the current access charge for the remaining months of that year will be billed to the member via a lump sum on final bill.
