Coast Electric service, engineering or staking personnel will determine the location for the point of service and metering equipment. We will work with you and your contractor during the site selection; however, we assume no responsibility to change the location of the service entrance should it be improperly installed or if our site location is not utilized.
To avoid delays, please meet with our representatives before installing your equipment. The service entrance/meter pan or house power panel must be installed on exterior walls and should be placed in locations that are easily accessible to our employees for meter maintenance, inspection and removal.
If you are interested in underground service, please contact us at 877-769-2372.
In areas where overhead services are normally installed, members may pay additional fees. To learn about these fees, check out our electric distribution facilities regulations.
Construction charges are also applicable when existing residential overhead service is changed to underground service.
When you need electric service during construction, Coast Electric will connect temporary, single-phase service. The temporary power pole, wiring and equipment should be supplied by the member and installed by your contractor, builder or an electrician. Temporary outlets should be placed at lot lines or lot corners where existing transformers or pedestals are located.
If you have underground service, temporary poles must be set by a Coast Electric serviceman.
A membership fee and service charge are required on all temporary service accounts. These fees are outlined in our list of fees and deposits.
Members requesting temporary service must fill out a damage release agreement.
Coast Electric has an outstanding service reliability record. Employees work each day to ensure you receive reliable, affordable service.
Your cooperative has an advanced automated metering infrastructure (AMI) that allows information to get to and from our system and personnel quickly and efficiently, causing reduced outage times for members.
This system improves reliability for our members but those who wish to opt out of having an AMI meter can do so for a monthly fee. AMI Opt-out Form
From a right-of-way program designed to keep vegetation-related outages to a minimum to a commitment to utilize the latest technology, Coast Electric employees are always looking for ways to provide excellent service.
Coast Electric employees work to provide reliable electric service to the homes and businesses it serves. However, there is no guarantee of uninterrupted service. Coast Electric has no liability for damage sustained because of failure or partial failure of power, failure or reversal of phases or variation in service characteristics whether caused by an accident, repairs, storms, or other causes; nor is the company liable for damages that may be incurred due to the presence of the company’s property on the member’s premises. It is the responsibility of the member to provide and maintain adequate relays and circuit breakers to protect against single-phase and phase reversal conditions on three-phase service installations.
