Hello everyone,
I am looking at a new construction in Aruba but it doesn’t have septic, water, or electrical yet. How much am I looking at to complete all that? I guess it varies, but can anyone give me a ballpark? I’m anxious to make an offer but don’t want to get in over my head.
Thank you,
Kayla

I saw on websites for Both Elmar ( electricity) and WEC ( water) a schedule of costs to install new services. Septic varies based on where and if there is rock to excavate and so on

I'm not sure how advanced the construction is you are talking about. But, electra needs to be approved by DTI. You request this approval through a certified electrician that lays the wiring etc for approval. After that, you go to Elmar/Web to pay for them to put/open a meter for you.

Call an electrician, they will need the map also of the build to make an estimate.
