Electrical Permits & Inspections

In support of the State of Tennessee’s effort to move their permit process online, effective February 1, 2022, DREMC encourages you to visit the provided links for all State permit needs.

If you are building a new residential or commercial electric service or making changes to an existing electric service, it is possible that you need to purchase an electrical permit through the State of Tennessee’s Department of Commerce and Insurance. Here are links to the state’s website where DREMC members may purchase electrical permits, request an inspection, or find a lost permit number.
