Homeowners are permitted to perform electrical work on their primary residence without an electrical license. All other installations require an electrical contractor that is licensed through the State of Colorado and registered with Douglas County.
Douglas County has an all-in-one permitting system in place that allows an electrical contractor to be listed as a sub-contractor on a building permit and the electrical work to be included in the building permit fee (Homewner Agreement Form). A construction meter permit, if needed at the job site would be the only additional electrical permit that would be required in addition to the building permit.
Electrical Permit Fees for other installations are based on square footage or the valuation of the project.
Applications may be submitted in person, mailed with a check or faxed with credit card information.
