Electrical Underground & Street Lighting

Electrical Underground

Once the applicant has selected the Town of Apex to be their electric utilities provider, they should turn in the signed Town of Apex Utilities Offer and Agreement Letter with the Site Plan or Subdivision Plan Application. The applicant should then contact Rodney Smith in the Electric Utilities Division via email or by phone at (919) 249-3342 to arrange for installation of underground electric. The Electric Utilities Division will start underground electric installation after the curbing and first lift of pavement have been set and the underground electric fee has been paid to the Public Works Department.

The invoice for the installation of electric utilities will be provided by the Electric Utilities Division. Service laterals to individual lots / point of delivery are charged at the time of building permit and payable at the Building Inspections Permit Desk when the building permit is picked up. Please see the Development Fee Schedule (PDF) for current rates.

Street Lighting

Standard street lights are added at no cost to the developer. Upgraded street lighting is available through the Town for a fee. Contact Rodney Smith for additional information.
