Underground Apartment Development

An Underground Apartment Development (UAD) is an underground electric distribution system where each secondary service lateral supplies more than one electric meter (ganged meters). In addition to traditional Multi-family Apartment  homes, Townhomes are also considered a UAD project. Use the UAD Check List and related links below as your submittal package guide.

Project Submittal

Once you have gathered all the items from the project check list, submit the collective package to our Electric Development Inbox at elecdev@jea.com for evaluation.  Please allow 3 to 5 business days for review and response. Once any corrections are addressed, the project submittal is accepted and assigned to a Project Engineer for electric design. You'll receive a confirmation email introducing the Project Engineer who will be your lead point of contact through electric construction completion.
