Yes, but you still need a permit. If you occupy the home and have a homestead exemption, you do not need to register as a contractor. If you have not applied through the Grayson County Appraisal District for a homestead exemption or this is a rental property, you will have to register as a contractor when applying for a permit. For more information or to check if your house is homestead exempt, please contact the Grayson County Appraisal District at (903) 893-9673.
You will need a registered electrical contractor to pull the permit unless you have a homestead exemption from the appraisal office. Once you have a permit and pass inspection you will need to call your electric company to set up service, so they can tie the application and release together.
