Fees Due

Membership is established with a one-time $50 refundable membership fee, and a $50 nonrefundable establishment fee is required for each new account. A deposit also may be required.

Service Connections 

Scheduled service connections are completed Monday through Friday between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m., with the exception of holidays. If you need your request completed within the next two business days or if you need electric service extended to a new service location that has never been metered, please let us know when you call or come by the office to request new service. We will need one business day to process all requests and locations with new meters may require more time. An additional fee may also be required for same day connects.
