26.02.130 Unanticipated Electrical Work.

Unanticipated electrical work is electrical work, including a new installation, requested by a customer where the timing of a request for commencement of work does not reasonably allow the contractor time to obtain an electrical permit before starting the work.  Unanticipated electrical work includes, but is not limited to, additional work assigned at the work site as well as preassigned work when the customer requests service at an unplanned date or time.  Unanticipated electrical work does not include electrical work where a permit already exists covering all or part of the work.
