Electric Service Upgrades and New Installations

When the time comes and you and your electrician or general contractor decide that it’s time to upgrade your electric service there are several steps that you will need to take. 

The WMLP requires that all upgraded electric service be placed underground which will/may require a street opening permit.  Contact the Department of Public Works Engineering Division (781-235-7600, ext. 3315) for more information. 

The Application for Electric Service (PDF) (Application) must be completed and signed by the property owner or an authorized agent prior to the start of work by WMLP. Page 2 of the Application must be completed for all services of 400 amps or greater. Applications will be accepted Monday through Friday between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m at the electric substation located at 8 Municipal Way.
