As a provider of an essential service, we are working to ensure we are here for our customers, our community and our employees as coronavirus impacts the region.

With Governor Inslee’s Safe Start Washington county-by-county phased re-opening approach, PSE is gradually returning maintenance and construction crews back into the field and offices. PSE’s highest priority is the health and safety of our employees and communities. As such, we continue to adhere to current CDC guidance regarding COVID-19 while working in our community.

We are requiring our employees to maintain physical distancing while working in the field and offices. We encourage our customers to do the same when engaging with our employees.

Permits and inspections

If you're building or remodeling, you need to follow all federal, state and local codes and pass inspections before Puget Sound Energy can install an electrical or natural gas service to the home.


Natural gas service installations

Check with your local jurisdiction about having your gas piping inspected and approved before PSE can install a natural gas meter and start service.


Electric service installations

Either your local jurisdiction or the Washington State Department of Labor and Industries will perform the inspection to ensure compliance with the National Electric Code (NEC) in addition to any local rules and regulations. While NEC provides minimum requirements, PSE may apply higher standards.

Some cities perform their own electrical inspections. Otherwise, the Washington State Department of Labor and Industries performs the inspections. For contact information, select an appropriate link below:

City jurisdictions

Inspections conducted on federal property must be performed by the federal government and those performed on tribal lands are conducted by tribal personnel.
