I have already begun construction on an existing plan (have the last lot left, but it is smack dab in the middle of the plan with homes on all sides).  I contacted the electric company to get a work order to have the temp electric hooked up.  There is a green box between every two homes in the plan and two electric services come from each box (the house on each side).  Well, they open my box up (which is located on my property) and there is only line for service to one (the home that already exists to the right of my lot).  The electric company is trying to tell me to authorize my electrician to dig across the street to the main transformer, run the line in the conduit under the road and tie into the pedestal on my own property for my electric.  All of the printed information the electric company supplies indicates it is their responsibility to have the electric service to the end of my property for me to tie into, but the engineer for the electric company says they don't dig and it's my responsibility.  Any help or insight would be appreciated.

The services/transformers are usually installed by the electric company, but at the expense of the developer.  If your developer sold the lot as having the electrical, it's his responsibility to remedy the situation.  If you bought it without that guarantee (power to the edge of the lot)., you might be stuck for getting the transformer upgraded or digging across the road.

If you technically fall as the role of the developer, then you have to pay it...  We developed our lot, and had to coordinate and pay for bringing the service off of a pole and underground 600 feet to a transformer for our house.

I suspect if you end up digging up the road, you'll need approval from the development, and may need city permits, etc.  If you can, you might be able to pay for directional drilling, which would eliminate the damage to the road surface, but it will be costly.
