New Membership (Residential)
To sign up for new service, you can set up your account by telephone, fax or stopping in the UEC office nearest you. Simply complete the membership application and sign it. With the payment of a $5 membership fee, you are automatically a cooperative member.
For residential accounts, a $250 deposit is required for new service. However, the deposit can be waived if you provide a letter of credit from a previous utility, showing a good payment record for the past 12 months. UEC customer service representatives will be happy to work with you on this procedure. You may wish to have a person who has established a good credit rating with the cooperative to co-sign for you when you establish new service. It is helpful to provide any kind of additional information, such as your apartment number or electric meter number, that will help locate and verify your address during the sign-up process. If you rent, we will need to know the property owner or landlord’s name.
