Terms and Conditions

The Cooperative will supply electric service to the member once the member is in compliance with all aspects of the service agreement, is of legal age, has paid all applicable fees to establish service, and agrees to be bound by the Cooperative’s established bylaws, service rules and regulations, line extension policy, rate schedules and riders, load management and demand response agreements, necessary right-of-way easements and any other cooperative agreements that might apply. The contractual service agreement may be completed in written, verbal or electronic forms.

Service will be provided after an application has been completed if:

  • The supply of electric service is for residential use.
  • All necessary forms of identification and proof of ownership/lease agreement provided and all monies due to the Cooperative (i.e. bad debts, deposits) have been paid.
  • None of the utility services require extra facilities. If the supply is for non-residential use, but is less than 50 kilowatts(kW) of electricity per month/billing period and single-phase.
  • If the service is 50kW or larger or three-phase, a contract must be signed and any contribution in-aid-of-construction paid per the Cooperative’s line extension policy.
Credit Worthiness

All members will be subject to the use of a credit scoring system approved by the Cooperative. If required, a non-interest bearing security deposit for existing homes of $300 or two times the average monthly electric bill for non residential accounts. All deposits are due in advance of service connection or at any subsequent time when the Cooperative determines that a deposit is needed to ensure payment of bills. Deposits are refunded after 24 months of satisfactory payment or when service is disconnected. As an alternative to residential/incidental cash deposits, the Cooperative will accept:

  1. A Guarantor. A member can have an existing member sign a guarantee. The Guarantor must be an immediate family member in good credit standing and have had service with the Cooperative for a minimum of 24 months. The Guarantor must meet all guarantor guidelines.
  2. A satisfactory record with an established credit reporting service acceptable to the Cooperative.
  3. Marine Federal Credit Union guarantor waiver.
  4. Indemnity or Insurance Bond.

By signing below, I hereby apply for electric service to be provided by Jones-Onslow EMC and authorize the Cooperative to perform a credit check to determine credit worthiness. Furthermore, I agree to pay all applicable fees and security deposit. Additionally, I give consent for the Cooperative to contact me at any telephone number associated with my account including wireless numbers. Methods of contact many include use of an automated dialer, text or e-mail for issues relating to my electric service, including but not limited to outages, collections, or access to the property. I understand that I am bound by all provisions in the Cooperative's bylaws and service rules and regulations, along with all applicable laws, rules, regulations, statutes and ordinances.
