Residential Service

New Connection or Existing Service (Reconnection of Service)

Existing permanent service to a residence, cabin, mobile home, campsite, or facility on the property of a member such as a workshop or well pump.


In addition to a $5 Membership Fee, a residential or seasonal (camper) consumer’s deposit is determined by the credit score reported through online.

  • A deposit is required of all consumers with credit risk assessments of 11% or greater (as supplied by Online Credit Services)
  • Deposits must be paid before electric service can be supplied to ensure prompt payment of bills
  • Deposits held by the cooperative earn no interest and are retained until a consumer terminates service with CVEC
  • The deposit will be applied against any unpaid bills and any remaining balance refunded to the consumer

If no credit rating is available or the consumer prefers not to supply the information necessary to obtain a credit rating, the consumer will pay the largest deposit required for residential or seasonal service: $500.

The following Scores Determine A Consumer’s Required Deposit:

Credit Score Deposit Required
0 to 10.9% No Deposit Required
11 to 20% $150
20.1 to 25% $250
25% and up $500
Smart Pay No Deposit Required

Connect Fee

  • A $20 Connect Fee is required of any new consumer before electric service can be supplied
  • CVEC also requires connect fees from any consumer requesting service to additional meters
