Apply for Service

We’ve made it easy to get your electric service started.

Have your driver’s license and social security number available.

A $5.00 Membership Fee (refundable) and a $28.00 Activation Fee (non-refundable) is required on all accounts.

We offer a traditional account where your deposit, if any, is determined by your personal credit history. If a deposit is necessary, it will be no more than $340.00. If we are unable to verify information, you may be asked to come into the office.

After you submit the online form, a customer service representative will process your application. Once completed, if you have provided a valid email address, a message will be sent to you with a link to access your new account page. When you create a password you can use our secure online portal to make any payments due. All fees and deposits (if applicable) can be paid online with a credit card or e-check. If you did not give an email address, you will receive a phone call. Applications received after regular business hours Monday-Friday or on weekends will be processed the next business day.

Advance Pay

In lieu of paying a deposit, we offer the option of an Advance Pay account. With Advance Pay, there are no monthly bills, deposits or late fees. Only $83.00 is needed to start. Included is the $5.00 Membership Fee (refundable) and a $28.00 Activation Fee (non-refundable). The remaining $50 is the initial prepaid advance credit applied to your account.
