  1. Contact us at 800.492.5989, visit one of our Customer Solutions Centers, or complete the New Service Request.
  2. Be prepared with one of the following:
    • the nearest pole number,
    • the nearest address, OR
    • the nearest crossroad intersection.
  3. Once we’ve established the location, you will receive a New Construction Packet that includes all of the necessary forms and instructions.
