Minnesota Electrical Inspectors

Except for minor repair work, all electrical work that you do at your home or property is required by law to be inspected by a State Electrical Inspector. A rough-in inspection must be made before any wiring is covered by insulation, sheetrock, etc., including installations underground. A final inspection is also required when all wiring has been completed.
