This online system was designed to allow homeowners and contractors to order electrical permits, pay for them using a credit card, and request inspections via the Internet.
Make sure your job site address is within the state's jurisdiction for inspection. The state does not inspect in local jurisdictions having their own electrical inspection program. You are responsible for determining the correct inspection authority.
If the county where your job site is located is listed below, please do not continue with the permit application process.
|Arapahoe - (except within Bow Mar, Deer Trail, Greenwood Village and Sheridan city limits)||Denver||Jefferson||Routt|
If you are a homeowner hiring an electrical contractor, your contractor is responsible for obtaining the required permits. Do not continue with the permit application process.
If you are a homeowner performing your own electrical work, please print the Homeowner Installation Guidelines for information on the inspection process and proper installation procedures.
Reminder: You cannot use the online system to request permit transfers (transfer of ownership), permit extensions or make informational changes to your permit (property address, spelling corrections, etc.). For any of these services, please contact the Denver office at DORA_ElectricalBoard@state.co.us.
