New Construction

It is important that the items below are submitted to properly size the equipment needed to serve your location. In order to start the new construction electric service process, we will require:

  • A completed New Construction Application
  • Site plan with dimensions that show the location of proposed structures, septic, well, driveways, etc.
  • Estimated peak demand for new service*

*The prospective member is expected to work with an electrician to determine the peak demand, which is defined as the highest electrical power demand that may be experienced over a period.

Application Process

After the application is received:

  1. It will be sent to an engineer for processing
  2. The engineer will develop a design option for the new service
  3. Kankakee Valley REMC (KV REMC) will issue work order paperwork
    • This may include: release forms, easements, cost estimates, and other documents

The member must complete all the following items, if applicable:

  • Submit all completed paperwork
  • Receive a passing county inspection on the new service entrance
  • Submit payment in full*

*Payment must be cash, personal check, money order, or cashier’s check.

*Service installation lead times may increase due to industry-wide material shortages.

After all items are received by KV REMC, the project may be scheduled to be completed.
