Temporarily Disconnect and Reconnect Service

Do you need to have your service temporarily disconnected and then reconnected for electrician or contractor work? A temporary disconnect/reconnect is for when there is no change to the existing electrical service, conductor, route, or meter and power will be reconnected once the work has been completed. For examples of temporary disconnect and reconnect scenarios, see the questions below.

Associated Costs/Fees: A request for disconnection and reconnection during normal business hours (excluding holidays) will require a payment of $356 in accordance with MEA Tariff Sheet Schedule of Fees. Payment for a disconnect/reconnect can be made at any of our offices in Palmer, Wasilla or Eagle River.
