Apply for Services

Need to establish service? Here are a few things to consider first:

Traditional Account versus Prepaid Metering: What is best for you?

Traditional Accounts require either an acceptable letter of credit from your current electrical provider OR a credit check to determine your security deposit. You receive a monthly statement based on the previous month’s usage.

Prepaid Metering offers the flexibility and convenience of paying how much you want, when you want. There is no security deposit or credit check required and no late fees because there’s no due date! Put as much money as you want on your prepaid account and pay-as-you-use. Receive daily notifications regarding your account balance and buy more power at any time by using our convenient payment options.

NOTE: CT meters, 400-amp service, demand or net metering accounts are not eligible for prepaid metering.

Items needed when applying for service:

  • The meter number for the new location. 
  • A $40 membership fee is also required at the time of application. 
  • Signed Membership Application and/or Prepaid Service Agreement.

Please contact a Habersham EMC Member Services representative in order to establish electrical service.
