A residential security deposit ($100 or $400) may be required when service is established with HES. Deposits are based on a credit risk factor. A security deposit is not required for previous HES customers (within past 24 months) with 12 months of good payment history (bill paid in full on or before due date). A letter of credit from a previous electric utility attesting to 12 months of good payment history may also be accepted in lieu of a deposit.

  • Customers may waive the credit score and pay a $400 deposit.
  • Customers transferring an existing service to a new address may require an additional deposit based on past payment history and the amount of the initial deposit.
  • No deposit is required if you sign up for Pay-As-You-Go service.

To disconnect an existing service:

A person listed on the account must visit the HES office and bring a current photo ID.

  1. You must provide the date you want the service turned off.
  2. Your final meter reading will be taken when the service is disconnected.
  3. If you have a deposit, your final bill will be deducted from the deposit.
