Establishing Residential Service
To establish service, all members must pay a refundable $5 membership fee, connect fee, and a deposit. Current members are not required to pay an additional membership fee, as multiple accounts can be held under one membership. To establish an account for a new home, construction fees may apply.
Residential Deposit Schedule and Required Paperwork
Before establishing a new residential account, a security deposit may also be required based on a credit rating system and the following schedule:
|Credit Score||Cost to Establish Service|
|Red||2x highest bill|

Applicants for service will also need to submit a copy of their driver’s license, a signed lease agreement or closing papers, and a completed SRE Membership Application. Renters applying for service are required to complete the New Service Rental Agreement in addition to a residential service application and lease agreement.
Establishing an Account at an Existing Southern Rivers Energy Service
If a member completes all applicable paperwork, fees, and deposits and any other paperwork necessary before 2 p.m. Monday-Friday, service will be connected on the same day. After 2 p.m., the service will be connected on the next business day.
Establishing an Account at a New Location
After applying for service and paying all applicable fees and deposits, contact your county building and zoning office to get your building permit number. Bring that permit number with you when you meet our staking engineer on-site to discuss options and develop a plan to serve your new home. Your new service should be completed within fourteen days of the inspection date by the county planning and zoning inspector. Construction fees may apply.
