The construction standards are designed as a guide for prospective members or contractors requesting a new or modified service connection from Vermont Electric Cooperative, Inc. (VEC). It is not intended to provide a complete description of all wiring details or legal requirements.
Complete compliance with these standards does not relieve the consumer or electrical contractor from installing service entrance equipment or wiring in accordance with rules and regulations published or followed by the local authority having jurisdiction.
The requirements set forth in these standards represent VEC’s minimum requirements for electric service. These requirements have been formulated to meet the regulations of the National Electrical Code and national Electrical Safety Code.
VEC urges all present and prospective members and contractors to consult with our engineering staff early in the planning stage of any new facility or project. By doing so, the member can be assured that adequate electrical capacity will be available at the site, when it is needed, provided all of the requirements outlined below have been met.
For more information please contact VEC’s Engineering Department at 1-800-832-2667 or 802-635-2331. You may also stop in our offices located at 42 Wescom Road, Johnson, Vermont to speak with our staff in person.
