South Dakota Electrical Commission – Homeowner Wiring
South Dakota Codified Law (SDCL) 20:44:14:01(12) defines an “owner’s exemption” as an exemption from licensure requirements for an individual owner who is personally installing electrical wiring and fixtures in a residence or farmstead which is owned and resided in or on by the person installing the electrical wiring or fixtures.
Homeowners are not required to be licensed to wire their own residence or farmstead which meet the requirements of SDCL 20:44:14:01; however, a wiring permit is required. You may purchase a wiring permit from the South Dakota Electrical Commission. (Note: Homeowners are not allowed to wire commercial or rental property with a Homeowner’s permit. Homeowners of a mobile home or modular home are not allowed to wire these structures. These properties must be wired by a licensed South Dakota electrical contractor.)
