The staking appointment will help WWVREMC determine your electrical needs. You will need to know the following:
As you can see, quite a bit goes into the initial meeting and planning is essential. Modifications to the work order can be costly in both time and money.
Based on the information you provided at the staking appointment, the WWVREMC representative will prepare a construction cost estimate. Any changes made after the job has been staked and the work order is generated, could be subject to another meeting at the job site with the staking technician. The construction cost must be paid before work will begin. In addition, a deposit may be required prior to service being built. Deposits are determined by a member’s credit worthiness.
In some instances, temporary service is not necessary. But, if necessary, WWVREMC will schedule crews to provide temporary electrical service once the member has done the following:
The temporary meter structure should be set within 5 feet of WWVREMC’s transformer.
In most cases, the WWVREMC’s representative drew up the plans for permanent service at the original staking appointment, and it will not be necessary to meet in person again. However, WWVREMC personnel will have to come out to the site to reevaluate and flag the permanent service. Once your permanent meter base has been installed and inspected by the county building inspector, WWVREMC will schedule crews to provide your permanent electrical service.
Staking appointments are generally able to be scheduled within 10 working days, but in the busy months it can take longer. Scheduling the crews to perform the line construction generally takes 7-10 working days but again, it can take longer. Weather or other situations beyond WWVREMC’s control could delay this time frame. WWVREMC will work diligently to meet a member’s electrical supply needs but know that planning ahead is imperative.
If simply replacing your meter base and/or weatherhead:
WWVREMC will generally disconnect service prior to 9:00 a.m. and reconnect service no later than 2:00 p.m., Monday-Friday.
Members building a new home or other structure requiring a meter, making changes to existing service such as a service upgrade, moving service, or going from overhead to underground will need to contact the cooperative to schedule an appointment with a staking technician.
