Electrical Information for Homeowners

ATTENTION: Mecklenburg County Code Enforcement strongly urges homeowners to use a North Carolina-licensed professional electrical contractor for any electrical wiring work. Electrical work can be highly dangerous, even for experienced do-it-yourself homeowners, and can put your life, property, and family in danger. 

For your safety, please consider using a licensed electrical contractor
for these types of projects.

The state of North Carolina allows homeowners to do their own wiring in their homes, provided the homeowner will personally will reside in the home, and that it is not for rent or intended for sale within one year after you complete the electrical installation. All electrical installations, changes, additions, or modifications to wiring systems are subject to permitting and inspections.
