Whether you’re a homebuilder or contractor working on a commercial, industrial or government project, we’ve got the tools to help you get started. Follow these steps to ensure your project gets completed successfully:

Getting started

If you need a Conflict Review, contact your Local Control Desk and submit your request to the control desk email associated with your projects location/address.

If you need power, fill out the Project Initiation Request form and the Public Safety Packet and email the completed application forms to your local control desk, which can be found using the map in the link below. If you don’t have adobe reader, please print the form and fill it out manually and either scan and email or drop off the form in person.

Contact your Local Control Desk with the PIR and necessary documents to start your project. He or she will ensure you have all necessary documentation to begin your project and connect you with you  Customer Project Representative. They will discuss the design of your project, timelines, fees and answer any questions you have about your project and the construction process.

Become familiar with our electric service requirements. This will provide you with the knowledge you need to successfully complete your project with minimal issues. If you are inquiring about outdoor lighting, visit Outdoor Lighting to help answer any questions you may have. We can also answer any questions about our Solar Program.

Installing Electric Service

1. When you’re ready to install electric service at a residence 200 Amps and below, please select an Electrical Meter Panel/Service Entrance Section from our Pre-Approved Panel List. If your panel is larger than 200 Amps (CT rated) or a commercial site, please submit your panel spec sheet information to an APS Customer Project Representative at APS Contact Map for approval.

2. Review the appropriate section of the Electrical Service Requirements Manual to ensure you are meeting our specifications:

3. Before you dig, contact Arizona 811 2-3 days prior to any excavation work.

4. Before we can connect power to your electrical panel, it must be scheduled by and inspected by your local municipality. Your APS customer project representative can schedule an inspection of the trench, conduit, and the utility side of the electrical panel only. To review municipality clearance requirement by city please review this table.

5. Review charges to extend power, Schedule 1 and Schedule 3.
