If your service location is new (Constructing New Service), if you need more power (Upgrading Existing Service), or if you’d like to move your meter or move your existing service (Relocate Existing Service), the content below will outline these basic processes for you.
Members interested in generating a portion of their power through personal generation (referred to as net metering) should visit our "Provide Personal Generation" page.
Members applying to construct a new service, relocate or upgrade will need to complete several documents. We do not have electronic versions of all the paperwork associated with this process currently available on our website, but we are working on providing it in the future.
Please contact MEA Member Services to request the new construction forms by calling 907-761-9300 or visit any of our open office locations.
Please note that prior to initiating a new construction work order, members must own the property on which they wish to bring service and be willing to grant MEA a Right-of-Way Easement to access the property.
In 2021, MEA is slated to install approximately 1,400 new services. Due to a large increase in demand for new services, new service work orders may take 4 to 8 weeks from start to completion. Our best recommendation is to get your work order started as early as possible, even before breaking ground on your project. Our Engineering Department can start design work and have that ready to go when it’s time for construction.
