Cass County Electric Cooperative implements new procedure

Starting July 15, 2024, CCEC will implement a new procedure aimed at enhancing efficiency for lineworkers, improving reliability for homeowners, and preventing wire theft – particularly in new developments and subdivisions.

New Process Overview

To ensure a smooth transition, please take note of the following steps:

  • Service Application: Complete the application for service at
  • Foundation Completion: Once the foundation is poured, backfilled, and marked for trenching, contact CCEC at (701) 356-4455 or via email at to initiate trenching the service drop to the home. The path must be clear for the trenching contractor.
  • Installation: CCEC's subcontractor will arrive to install the conduit and wire to the marked service location per CCEC policy.
  • Temp Energized: The contractor notifies CCEC when the temporary service is ready to be energized. Temporary service should be set near the foundation where service wires are to go or have already been installed.
  • Transition Notification: Notify CCEC when the service needs to change from temporary to permanent.
  • Final Transfer: CCEC lineworkers will visit the job site to complete the transfer to permanent service.

Key Change

Under the new procedure, CCEC will only bring the secondary wire to the service location after the foundation has been poured. Our underground contractor will handle trenching to the home, allowing a temporary meter to be set at that time.

Action Required

They encourage you to inform any subcontractors as soon as possible to accommodate this new process.

If you have any questions or need further assistance, contact (701) 356-4542 or
