New Electric Service

New Overhead Electric Service

For a new overhead electric service, MG&E will furnish and install cable to the point of attachment at the customer's service entrance at no cost, provided the total distance does not exceed 150 feet. For longer distances, you will be billed for the additional labor and materials required to make the connection.

New Underground Electric Service

For a new underground electric service, the customer must provide all the conduits, conductors, pull boxes, and terminal boxes according to applicable electric codes and MG&E specifications. MG&E will make the final connection at no charge.

If you need your gas or electric meter moved in order to complete a project such as residing your home, call us at 508-947-3023 for movement of your electric meter and at 508-947-1535 for any work around your gas meter and we will take care of it. Call us back when you are finished to reinstate your service. There is no fee for this service.

Temporary Discontinuation of Service

If you are leaving for a long period of time and want your gas or electric service disconnected, you must make a written request and sign a waiver either by mail, fax, or in person at our office. You will pay a turn-off fee for both electric and gas service at that time. Service will be resumed when you request. When service is resumed, there will be no turn-on fees for both gas and electric service.
