Default Explain these renovation ESA fees to me

In regards to whether work is considered "service work"
If I'm running say a new stove wire and outlet for a customer and have to add a breaker to the panel, is that considered "service work" and would I have to choose the fee which includes service work?
The note in the red box doesn't mention anything about adding a breaker or fuse to the panel.
Any thoughts on this?
My ESA quick reference guide says something different

The red box talks about the electrical service, not service work.

Essentially, unless it's repair or replace, it's considered new work.

Seriously, though, who pulls a permit to run a new range circuit? I was doing a job once and the people next door wanted two more lights installed in their garage, bare bulb keylesses. They were "by the book" people so I pulled a permit. The inspector told me to never bother him with that kind of chit again.

There's a lot of hacks in the GTA, I know this because I've seen the crap they've left behind. Green wire in a cab tire used as a switch leg, using the deck in a warehouse as a neutral etc

Until there is a fire and they blame the un-inspected electrical work

You may find it easier to use the online application.

HERE

It's free to sign up. (1.877.372.7233) and ask to be added to their system. We use it for quotes when estimating- just don't press continue after you get your prices. One of the ESA staff told us that.

BTW that quick reference book is a few years behind in pricing.

The last price increase was in January if I remember correctly.

Somehow, sharing the pain didn't help much
