Customer Responsibility

The question often arises where Peru Utilities’ and customers’ responsibilities end and begin regarding electrical services.

  • For overhead service, customers need to supply and maintain a meter base, grounding point, and wire, a service mast with wire and weatherhead, and an attachment point (either clamped around the service mast or screwed directly into the house).
  • Customers will also be responsible for tree growth near service lines.
  • Customers must supply and maintain a meter base and grounding point with wire for underground service.
  • Peru Utilities will maintain primary, transmission, and service lines(overhead and underground) as far as the meter, utility poles, transformers, and trees around primary and transmission lines.
  • As always, if you have any questions, feel free to call our office at (765) 473-6681.
