New service is identified as the actual installation of new electrical equipment. It does not represent new or existing customers relocating to established APC service locations.
Residential Overhead Service Standard Allowance
Alpena Power Company provides for each permanent, year-round dwelling, a single-phase overhead line extension, excluding service drop at no additional charge for a distance of 600 feet, of which no more than 200 feet is a lateral extension on the customer’s private property. When these distances are exceeded, a residential line extension charge is required and that standard charge is $3.50 per lineal foot for all excess footage.
For each permanent, seasonal type dwelling, Alpena Power Company shall provide at no extra charge a 200 foot overhead extension from a main line distribution feeder and no additional charge for an overhead service drop of no more than 100 feet.

Commercial or Industrial Overhead Service
With exception of the charges required for new underground service, APC will finance the construction cost necessary to extend its overhead facilities to serve commercial or industrial customers when such investment does not exceed two times the estimated annual distribution revenue anticipated to be collected from customers initially served by the extension. When said costs do exceed the revenue anticipated, customers shall be required to pay the additional costs associated with the extension. Certain categorical limits apply.
