ATTENTION ALL ELECTRICAL CONTRACTORS
CHANGES TO PROCESSING ELECTRICAL PERMITS
When applicants for Electrical Permits select ‘Yes’ to the question ‘City of Aspen Electrical Service’ and ‘Yes’ to ‘New or Upgraded Service,’ the Utilities Department is triggered as a review group on the permit. When that happens, the applicant must upload the Electric Load Form as part of their submittal. Utilities cannot perform its review without the Electric Load Form, which can be found on the Utilities’ website—Click Here to Open.
As part of its review, Utilities uses this form to determine if Electric Community Investment (ECI) fees are due. The ECI fee is charged to any customer requesting services for new development and expansion of existing services within the service area. (For information on the ECI fee please click here.) Until now, Utilities has collected the ECI fee separate from the Electrical Permit. Effective immediately, if ECI fees are due, they now will be assessed on the Electrical permit, which will streamline the ECI fee collection process. These fees will appear in the electrical contractor’s cart on the Salesforce applicant portal.
Electrical contractors, please ensure that your customers are aware of these additional fees. While we can issue the electrical permit before the ECI fees are paid, electrical service will not be available to the property until they are paid. As the applicant on the permit, the electrical contractor can pay the fee in Salesforce, or the customer can pay the fee directly by contacting email@example.com.
