Inspections are the law

Any time you or an electrician does wiring or other electrical work at your home or farm, remember that Minnesota State law requires a state wiring inspector to conduct a proper inspection of the work.

The state of Minnesota has high wiring standards, which are in the best interest of you and your family. Improper wiring can damage your property and equipment and injure or kill the people you love.
