New Electric Service
When applying for electric service, the Cooperative requires a $25.00 membership fee and a $10.00 connect fee. The membership fee makes you a part owner of your own electric company – Arkansas Valley Electric Cooperative Corporation.
In addition to the above fees, a security deposit may be required.
Small Commercial: The standard deposit is $250. The deposit must be paid in full with the application.
Residential: The standard deposit is $200.00. The deposit can be paid in full with the application or in installments: $100.00 due upon application and remainder in two $50.00 payments with first two bills. Your deposit with interest will be refunded after 12 consecutive on-time payments (NO late payments within a 12 month period).
Deposits may be waived by providing one of the following items:
- A letter of credit from your previous electric utility reflecting good payment history.
- A present member of Arkansas Valley Electric with a good credit standing with the Cooperative can sign as a Third Party Guarantee for the new member.
- NO DEPOSITS required with PrePay!
