Applying For New Construction Service
To apply for new construction service, installation of new electric facilities where they do not currently exist, please email email@example.com. Include the following information in your email: Name, service address, phone number, and mailing address.

As a new PREPAID member, no deposit is required. You will be required to pay the $35.00 Membership Fee, and you will be required to pay a minimum of $65.00 to activate a prepaid account. This amount will be applied toward future energy use.
You will not receive a monthly bill.
If you are an existing regular account member and wish to convert to a prepaid account, any deposit held will be applied toward any outstanding balance, any fees associated with starting a prepaid account and the purchase of future energy use.
A prepaid account will be subject to the Prepaid Residential Rate. This will be charged to the account as a daily fee.
Prepaid accounts are not eligible for payment arrangements
Any Energy Assistance or Trustee monies will be applied to the prepaid account once payment is received. Pledges will not be accepted to keep electricity on.
Electric service will be subject to immediate disconnection if at any time the account does not have a credit balance. If service is disconnected, to reactivate the account the member must pay, any outstanding balance, the minimum credit balance of $50.00 and a reconnect fee before service will be restored.
If a returned check or charge-back is received on the account, the amount of the check or charge-back and a return fee will be charged back to the member’s account immediately. If this causes the credit on the account to be exhausted, service will be disconnected within 24 hours.
If at any time, a prepaid member wants to convert the prepaid account back to a regular billed account; a deposit may be required based on twice the monthly average of the location.
