ELECTRICAL, PLUMBING, PROPANE & SOLID FUEL PERMIT REQUIREMENTS
The Town of Wells does not perform Electrical, Propane, Natural Gas or Solid Fuel Permits locally. It is the responsibility of the Electrical Contractor to obtain all the necessary permits and inspections at the State level for Electrical work. Plumbing Permits are obtained in the Wells Code Enforcement Office. Propane, Natural Gas & Solid Fuel work does not require a permit at the Town or State level.
A homeowner can do their own work if it is their primary residence. If the dwelling has any of the following circumstances it must have a STATE OF MAINE LICENSED INDIVIDUAL perform the work for electrical, plumbing, propane, natural gas and solid fuel:
· If there is more than one dwelling unit to include accessory dwelling units attached or part of the structure
· If it is attached to other units in separate ownership
· Attached to a business or commercial activity
A General Contractor would also need the necessary licenses to work with the electrical, plumbing, heating/HVAC.
