When upgrading your service in Independence, M.O. You will want to start by looking for a licensed and insured master electrician that is local to the area. Once you have selected your top-rated electrical contractor nearby it is time to have them come out and determine what exactly is going on with your electrical panel and if your electrical system truly needs upgrading or just serviced. When upgrading you will have to get the local utility company out to see if the service will need to go underground or overhead if that is the current scenario.
Typically Independence Power & Light requires the customer to go underground unless there is some kind of obstruction in the way like a shed, street, tree etc. Once you have acquired an electrical permit from the city of Independence you will have to either contact a planner to come out to relocate the meter potentially or schedule the power company to meet so they can disconnect power so you can safely perform the electrical upgrades once they have brought the electrical meter.
Once the power has been disconnected the electrical contractor will then begin taking down the outside riser if needed and meter can as well as the electrical breaker box inside your home. Once the old service panel and mast is out of the way the electrician will then begin rebuilding and installing all the new electrical equipment and devices required to code so that the project will pass by a local electrical inspector and then by the power company.
