Wiring Permits

Licensees and Wiring Permit Applicants,

I would like to thank everyone for their understanding and cooperation during the Virus restriction period.  The Governor of Wyoming has begun a phased reopening of businesses and public places.  In accordance, we are trying to get back to business as normal.  Our inspectors have been instructed to return to work as normal bearing in mind to be cautious and obey any local restrictions when performing their duties.  The office staff has remained, and will continue to be available by telephone or email for any licensing or permitting questions.  We understand that many testing sites have been closed and this has affected some licenses.  If your license has expired or you have questions about renewal, don’t hesitate to contact our office to address your issues. Some renewal deadlines have been extended on a case by case basis for those who have been affected by COVID 19. 

Thank you for your continued patience and we want our electricians, contractors, and homeowners to know that we are here to serve you to the best of our ability. 

Jane Allred
Chief Electrical Inspector

Do I need a wiring permit?

An electrical wiring permit shall be obtained prior to beginning any new construction or remodeling of any building, mobile home, or premises if the work will require a public utility to connect or disconnect and restore electrical power. Electrical permits are not required for installations exempt under W.S. 35-9-123 (a)(ii) through (v), unless the electrical work is being performed by a person or company acting as a subcontractor for the exempt person, partnership, or corporation and the electrical work is governed by the National Electrical Code.
