Only licensed electricians are allowed to apply for electrical permits. All permits must be applied for within five (5) days of commencing work. An email address must be provided with all electrical permit applications.
PLEASE NOTE - The licensed electrician who applied for the permit shall contact the Town Building Inspector's Office at 508-841-1519 to schedule an inspection. It is the sole responsibility of the licensed electrician whose name is on the permit to schedule any and all electrical inspections.
All existing SELCO electrical permitting and inspection scheduling policies will remain in effect until the Board of Selectmen votes to authorize new policies for the Town. To see the written policy, click HERE
The licensed electrician does not have to be on site during inspection. However, a responsible individual over the age of 18 as designated by the licensed electrician may represent the contractor during the inspection and must be on-site for the inspection to proceed as scheduled.
The electrician will be notified of pass/fail status via email through the Town of Shrewsbury’s online permitting system upon completion of the inspection. The failure of inspection will require a $50 re-inspect fee and the electrician will be required to be on-site for the follow-up inspection.
