I would like to perform my own electrical work. Can I pull a permit as a homeowner and not a licensed electrician?

According to Massachusetts Electrical Code, a homeowner may perform electrical work provided that:

  1. The work being done is residential, not commercial; and
  2. The person performing the work is the property owner; and
  3. The person performing the work resides at the property.
  4. The person performing the work must get prior approval from the Wiring Inspector.

All four of these conditions must be met in order for a homeowner to perform their own electrical work.
