Electrical Reconnect: If your service is with Florida Power and Light, please contact them directly in order to have service restored.  If your service is with Glades Electric and the power has been disconnected for less than two years, please contact them directly to have power restored.  If it has been disconnected for more than two years, Glades Electric requires an inspection prior to restoring service.  You are responsible for hiring a licensed electrician to inspect your infrastructure.  The electrician must provide you a written affidavit indicating the location of the inspection and that there are no issues with the electrical infrastructure.  You must bring that affidavit to the Community Development Department office.  Community Development then sends a Power Release Request to Glades Electric.

Documents Needing to be Notarized: A notary public may not sign notarial certificates using a facsimile signature stamp unless the notary public has a physical disability that limits or prohibits his or her ability to make a written signature and unless the notary public has first submitted written notive to the Department of State with an exemplar of the facsimile signature stamp.
