(1) A county may not enact any ordinance, regulation, or policy that prevents or has the effect of preventing an electric utility, as defined in s. 366.02(4), from installing a temporary underground power panel if the temporary underground power panel meets the requirements of Article 590 of the National Electrical Code, 2020 edition, during the construction and installation of the temporary underground power panel. After the county has conducted an inspection of the temporary underground power panel, the county may not require a subsequent inspection of the temporary underground power panel as a condition of issuance of the certificate of occupancy.
