Deposit

Any applicant who applies for service from Blue Ridge Electric may be required to pay a deposit to insure settlement of each account.

  • For new residential applicants, deposits will be based on results obtained from a required utilities credit check and will range from $250 - $450. If the credit check performed by the Cooperative indicates a good credit history for the applicant, a deposit may be waived.

 

  • For existing residential members, in-house credit is used to determine if a deposit is needed before connecting to a second location or transferring service to another location if no deposit exists on the account. This must be paid prior to connecting or transferring service.

 

  • Commercial deposit amounts will be reviewed by the Cooperative and the amount may vary according to the type of service desired.
