I just purchased a house and am trying to get the power turned on. The power company said I have to have an electrician come out. What does the electrician need to do?
Congratulations on your new home! If the power has been off to your house for more than 6 months, an electrician must inspect the electrical service equipment/wiring and install a self-certification tag. The self-certification tag…you guessed it…certifies that an electrician has inspected the electrical service and it is safe for power to be turned on.
