Each member pays a $5.00 membership fee (one per member). A husband and wife can hold a “joint membership” and will pay only one membership fee. There is a non-refundable Account Service Charge of $10.00 to establish a new account. Even if you are already a member and you apply for an additional account, you will be charged an Account Service Charge. For Residential Service, the Security Deposit Amount is based on the applicant’s credit score, ranging from $0 to 2.5 times the average residential bill. For Commercial, Large Power, or Industrial accounts, all Security Deposit Amounts will be based on two times that member’s estimated average monthly bill.
