Information About Scheduling Services

Several variables affect the scheduling of Delmarva's workforce to construct your electric service. Please review the material below to understand the responsibilities and process.

Customer Readiness

It is the customer's responsibility to complete the job requirement prior to Delmarva starting the project.

Examples of requirements include:

  • Approved inspections
  • Site readiness
  • Contracts signed and payment received
  • Ground within final grade
  • Paved roadways

Contractor Lead Times

Lead times for residential and commercial job types will vary based on the scope of work associated with your service construction project. Delmarva will review the scope of work and will establish the amount of time needed for completion. Customer need dates that do not meet the lead time requirements will be evaluated by New Business to determine if accommodations can be made.

Project Need Date

The need date for a customer's request is the date that the customer requires Delmarva services to be complete, including energized and meter set. The need date is NOT the schedule date. Delmarva will schedule your project to begin in time to allow for the scope of the project to be completed by your need date, assuming that the appropriate lead time has been provided.

Customer need dates are determined using the following major factors:

  • Customer's readiness
  • Scope of work
  • Lead time provided by contractor
  • Work management schedule availability
  • Customer's obligations

Project Management Activities

Time is required after receiving your application to process the request. This time is required for project management activities such as site meetings, estimate, contracts, design, permitting, and easements prior to scheduling. When evaluating the lead time to meet your need date, please factor in the project management activities and scheduling activities to ensure Delmarva can support your need date.

Scheduling Process

Ongoing communication with your New Business representative will ensure a smooth process from start to finish. The scheduling process includes the following activities:

  • Customer ensures that customer responsibilities are met (Customer readiness)
  • Customer submits an application
  • Delmarva reviews the application, scope of work and need date
  • Delmarva provides a confirmation card containing contact information and a unique identification number; the Delmarva representative assigned will be the single point of contact for all design, planning, scheduling and coordination required for the project
  • Delmarva determines the lead time needed to complete the request (lead times for both construction and project management activities)
  • Assuming that sufficient lead time has been allowed for needed Delmarva activities and that there is worker availability, Delmarva schedules the timeframe for work to be completed
