Electric Service Planning Application

The Electrical Service Planning Application (ESPA) is needed to obtain a permit and is also used by the design team to determine your power requirements. Print and complete your ESPA, and mail it to the address listed on the top of the application.

Austin Energy’s signing of the ESPA signifies that Austin Energy can provide the load, voltage, and type of infrastructure requested on the ESPA.

Customers are still responsible for providing the necessary infrastructure and for following all NEC codes and the Austin Energy Design Criteria.

Commercial Electrical Permitting Application

In addition to the ESPA, you may also be required to complete a commercial Electric Permitting Application for multi-metered commercial projects. You will need to include the completed form with the Building Plan Review package.
