Security Deposits

Deposits must be paid before electric service may be connected. Deposits are refunded, including interest, when electric service is discontinued. Deposit amounts for residential accounts are $300.

Customers may have the option of a credit check through ONLINE Utility Exchange, or pay the maximum designated deposit. Those customers with a satisfactory credit score will not be charged a deposit or may be charged the minimum deposit requirements.

JCPB reserves the right to evaluate customers' payment histories to assess credit risks which may require additional deposits. JCPB may also require an additional deposit if an account is found to be "at risk." All deposits will continue to accrue annual interest. Upon termination of service, any existing deposit and interest will be applied against any unpaid balance of the customer. If any balance remains, that amount will be refunded to the customer upon request.

Deposit payment options: Check, cash, money order, VISA, MasterCard, Discover, or On-line credit check (pending authorization).
