Your home’s electrical system begins with power purchased from Jefferson Energy Cooperative. Electrical power is sent to your home through electrical lines from an overhead power pole or underground buried lines. There can be confusion about who is responsible for maintaining and repairing residential electrical equipment. The information below is a reference to help identify the utility owned equipment (see black) versus the member owned equipment (see grey), please see diagrams below.

The owner of the building owns the electric service panel. The owner is responsible for all issues related to member owned equipment, not the electric utility.
