You may want to move your electrical service to build a garage, add an addition to your home, or simply eliminate the overhead power line on your property.

The tables below show general costs to modify the electrical service for a standard-sized, residential lot in towns and cities.

All costs are estimates only and subject to an actual quote and site inspection. You will incur additional costs from your electrician and you will also need to contact SaskTel and your cable provider as they have additional costs.

  • Customers are responsible for providing access to the yard and a clear construction route for trenching. Work may require you to remove a fence, garbage stand, swing set, paving stones, etc.
  • Working with underground cables requires us to trench in the yard, SaskPower will backfill and level the trench. The customer is responsible to repair landscaping. In some Northern communities where rock is a problem, the customer may be required to supply the trench and will receive a $150.00 credit on the standard price rate.
