City of Leesburg
Change of Service or Service upgrade
What is a “Change of Service” fee?
A “change of service” fee would be charged under the following conditions;
Customer chooses to convert from overhead service to underground service.
Customer changes out an existing outdoor panel, either keeping it the same size, or increasing the amperage, that requires the meter to be pulled or service to be disconnected to perform the work in a safe manner.
Panels sub-feeding from a main panel will not be included in “Change of service” fees. Replacement of breakers or conductors of the same size will not be included in “Change of Service” fees.
“Service Request” forms will be filled out for all “Change of Service” requests. The City of Leesburg building department will not issue permits for electrical work that falls under the above categories without a “service request” form.
All services shall have a main disconnect on the outside of the house or building for safety reasons.
If you plan on upgrading your electric service, call a Service Planner at 352-728-9786, extensions 2020, 2021 or 2026, or email at Electric Service Planners, prior to starting any work. They will meet you onsite to determine if any additional work may be required. The Service Planner will complete a “Service Request” form which will be needed at Customer Service to pay all applicable fees. The form must also be presented at the City of Leesburg Building Department to obtain a permit.
After all fees are paid, and permits are secured, the customer can call our Dispatchers at 352-728-9830 to schedule disconnect/reconnects for an Electric Service upgrade. Please call a minimum of 72 hours ahead of time to get placed on the schedule.
