Section 701: Point of Delivery of Electric Service

I. Objective:

To define the "point of delivery" where the member attaches to PEC's electric system and receives service.

II. Policy Content:

To establish guidelines for connecting PEC's electric facilities with our members to form a "point of delivery."

III. Provision:

  1. The point of delivery of electric service shall be at the point at which the electric supply system of PEC connects to the wiring system of the member.
  2. For overhead or underground construction, the point of delivery is that point where PEC’s overhead service drop connects to the member’s service conductors, whether on a building, structure, pole or pedestal.
    1. Where the point of delivery is on a pole, it shall be the responsibility of PEC to furnish and install the pole serving as the point of delivery. The pole shall be installed at a location designated by PEC’s personnel. Any further relocation of facilities shall be at the member’s expense.
      PEC will install the necessary meter loop on its pole. When the pole is to be used as the member’s distribution point, the member will, at his expense, furnish all wire, pipe or other equipment required to serve his electrical needs. All wiring installed on PEC’s pole will be the member’s responsibility, with the exception of PEC’s meter loop, and shall meet the requirements of the National Electrical Code as well as the regulations and rules of PEC.
    2. Where point of delivery is on a building or other structure, the overhead point of delivery will normally be at the weatherhead of the electric service entrance. The underground point of delivery will be the source side of the member’s meter base.

IV. Responsibility

It will be the responsibility of the Sr. Manager of Engineering and Power Delivery, Sr. Manager of Distribution Operations, and Director of Construction Engineering to properly administer these provisions.
