Establishing New Service
Pearl River Valley Electric Power Association has established its member fees and charges based on the reasonable and customary standard for our industry and local area.
Membership Fee - $5.00 - required to establish a member account, regardless of the number of meters assigned to the account. Upon termination of service, the fee is applied to the final billing or if the account is paid in full, the fee is refundable. (Membership fees are not transferable from one person to another).
Security Deposit - $0—300.00 - Deposits are determined by credit scores and may be waived if a member has a good credit rating. The deposit earns yearly interest and shall be credited to account when service is terminated.
$100.00 - minimum deposit required if construction is necessary for new service to a mobile home.
Connection Fee - $45.00 - a non-refundable fee charged when connecting new service or transferring service to a different location in PRVEPA’s service area. This fee is also charged for installing a new security light.
Temporary Construction Fee - $50.00 - a non-refundable fee charged when connecting service to a temporary construction pole.
Collection Fee - $30.00 - a non-refundable fee charged for attempting to collect on a delinquent bill during regular business hours.
Service Charge - $30.00 - a non-refundable fee charged for reconnecting service, disconnection of service for non-payment, or second inspections during regular hours. This charge will also be billed for service calls when the cause of the service problem or outage is not related to Association equipment. NOTE: Charge is $40.00 before or after regular business hours, on weekends or holidays.
Returned Check Fee - $25.00 - charged when a member's check is returned for insufficient funds, etc. After the second occurrence of a returned check in a 12-month period, only cash payments, debit/credit card payments or money orders will be accepted.
Late Payment Fee - $5.00 – added to accounts when payment is not made by the delinquent date. Cut-off date is noted on your bill. There will be no mailed final notice of cut-off.
Meter Tampering Fee - $375.00 - charged when there is evidence that a member has altered their electric service connection in a way that prohibits proper recording of electric usage. A deposit of up to $350 will also be charged to the account as well as an estimated amount for any un-metered electricity used.
Construction Fees - Any costs required to build facilities necessary to provide service will be discussed at the time of application.
