Hi, I just got the keys to a rental apartment and there is no electricity, I’m not sure if the switches here mean it’s on or off? Any ideas?

If the apartment does not provide electricity, you need to get it setup in your own name.

the breakers here appear to have labels "on" and "off". Try turning them on. If you don't know, ask the landlord if you need to go to the electric company to get power turned on. Of ask a neighbor if they pay their own electric bill.

Probably off, you probably have to get it turned on in your name/pay a deposit etc.

Did you call the power provider to get the service turned on in your name? If not, do that now.Source(s): FL landlord

did you get the electricity turn on in your name, if not that's the issue
Call power company to see if electric has been connected yet in your name

Did you call the electric company and have it turned on in your name?

Call the electric company and have it hooked up - open an account. What did you expect? That the prior tenant left it on for you and is sitting in her new place without electric service?Source(s): Certified Paralegal, with 25+ years' experience & with Landlord & Tenant law experience.

They look off. Typically, but not always, off is down and on is up.

All those switches are turned off turn them on

Flipping the switch up is ON.

My idea is to flip them all over and see if anything happens.
