If you are applying for service for electricity or natural gas, you may be asked to pay a deposit. For further information:
  • Contact your energy utility about how to show proof of your ability to pay.
  • The Commission has rules addressing how you can establish credit.
To determine the amount you will pay:
  • Energy utilities estimate your usage for one year and charge you one-sixth of that amount.

To pay in installments:
  • You can pay three installments beginning at the start of service, at  30 days, and 60 days. The payments will be $30 or one-third of the deposit, whichever is larger.

Your deposit will be refunded (with interest):
  • If you terminate service. Deposits will be used to pay any balance on your account.
  • Once you establish credit with the utility.

If you move to a new address within the same utility’s service area, the deposit will be transferred to your new account.
