Homeowner's Electrical Permits
The Homeowner’s Electrical Permit may only be issued to homeowners performing basic electrical work without assistance from others. They must be listed as the homeowner of record on the deed, and live in the home in order to perform the work.
- Since incorrect/faulty wiring is the cause of many residential fires, it is important that homeowners planning to do their own electrical work have a basic knowledge of residential wiring principles.
- The city will inspect all of the homeowner’s work to ensure it complies with the current National Electrical Code and all applicable City Codes and Ordinances.
- If a large number of corrections need to be issued, the electrical supervisor may be called in to determine if the homeowner has the knowledge needed to complete the wiring.
- PDS may void the permit if it becomes clear the homeowner does not have the knowledge to complete the installation. Refunds are not available. The homeowner will be required to hire an electrical contractor to finish the job and pay a new permit fee.
