Temporary Disconnects & Upgrades

Temporary Disconnects

During service upgrades and building improvements, meter loop disconnects are sometimes required. Please notify our office at least 24-hours in advance and our service crews will be dispatched to temporarily disconnect the service while the work is completed. Crews will return at an appropriate time to reconnect the service.

An electrical permit is normally required to complete the reconnect of the upgraded service.

Upgrades & Changes

When upgrades are made, Yellowstone Valley Electric Cooperative (YVEC) may need to upgrade the connecting transformer and service wire. If the upgrade includes adding significant electrical load to the electrical system, notify our office several weeks in advance so we may schedule appropriately. YVEC will allow a 50% reduction of the actual cost of changing the transformer and service wire.
