New Service Hookup
When a customer decides that a new service for electrical energy is going to be required within the service area of Pacific County PUD, the customer must contact the PUD office as soon as possible. This will allow enough time for all the engineering, permitting and scheduling requirements that are required before the actual construction of the new electrical service. Due to the diversity of new services, it may take from two to eight weeks, depending on the complexity of the new service.
