Transfer of Service Fees
When you are buying or renting a home or residence that is currently served by DEC, we will simply transfer the service.
- $12.00 transfer fee
- $34.00 reconnection fee if electric is turned off at the property
- $25.00 membership fee if not already an existing member
- Deposit: $0-$250 depending on credit history
The size of your deposit is determined by your credit history and is required to protect our members from those who leave our lines without paying their final balance. Your deposit will be credited to your account after 12 consecutive months of paying your bill with no late payments.
