Residential Deposits

Residential deposits are based on Online Utility Exchange’s ‘new national risk model’ based on their credit score and history of utility payments. New customer deposits will be either $100, $200, or $300 based on their credit report. Customers with good credit will pay $100; customers with fair or non-established credit will pay $200; and customers with poor credit or a record of late payments on their credit report will be charged $300. Customers with excellent credit or who have had electric service with the Department in the last three years and maintained an excellent credit rating may receive a waiver of deposit. The full amount of the required deposit must be paid before service is connected.

Residential customers who maintain an excellent pay rating with the Department for a minimum of three years may receive a refund of their deposit and any earned interest in the form of a credit on their electric bill. An excellent pay rating means that the customer paid their bills by the date due, had no disconnections for nonpayment and no returned checks for insufficient funds charged to their account. Customers who disconnect service prior to three years will receive a credit toward their final bill of the deposit and any interest accrual due. If this transaction results in a credit balance, a refund check will be sent to the customer.

Commercial Deposits

Commercial deposits are based on an average of two months electric usage for a period not to exceed the last two years at the location where service is requested. If service is requested for a new construction, the deposit will be based on an average of two months electric usage for a building comparable in size to the new construction. Commercial deposits may take the form of an irrevocable letter of credit from the customer’s bank, surety bond, or cash.
