Service Deposits

Tipmont may require a service deposit when a member or applicant assumes billing responsibility for a service or when a service upgrade is required.

Deposit amounts are calculated based on an average of two months usage over the last 12 months at that service location, or a minimum amount of $200. The deposit amount for service upgrades and new service installation are determined by a Tipmont engineer.

Deposits may be paid using cash, check, credit card, or money order. For a deposit amount in excess of $5,000 (usually a business), you may provide an irrevocable letter of credit or surety bond from a licensed provider. Deposits must be paid before the electric service can be transferred or connected.

Can my deposit be waived?
Deposits less than $1,000 may be waived for new members that allow Tipmont to run a soft credit check from a third-party credit reporting agency. If the report meets the established credit requirements, the deposit may be waived.
