Residential - Apply for Service
Membership Certificate/ Application
An application for membership for Inter-County Energy may be downloaded for completion. Everyone who receives electrical service from Inter-County must pay a one-time, $50 membership fee. This form may be taken to either of Inter-County's offices together with money for the membership fee. If this form is not signed in the presence of an Inter-County Energy employee, the applicant's signature along with any additional authorized parties shall be notarized.
Applying for Service and Deposits
The bottom portion of the membership application is a Certificate of Deposit. Deposits are sometimes necessary to protect the cooperative's revenue and comply with applicable regulations. For a residence without electric heating equipment the deposit is $75 and for a residence with electric heating equipment it is $125. Deposits may be waived as follows:
Upon the consumer's showing a payment history, either with Inter-County Energy or the previous major utility which satisfactorily meets these qualifications:
No more than 2 delinquent notices in a 12-month period,
No disconnects for nonpayment, and
No returned checks.
Federal, state or local governmental agencies (such as street & traffic lights, office building, schools, fire or rescue departments) may be exempted.
A surviving spouse with favorable credit desiring to change a residential electric service to their name.
A consumer who suffers a disaster such as fire or other catastrophe.
