Billing Information / Fees
Membership Fee: A $5 Membership fee is refundable upon termination of service.
Connection Fees: A non-refundable service fee of $40 is required to connect or changeover an existing account. The new service connect fee is $65 and a temporary service is $125.
Security Deposit: New residential members with satisfactory credit, as reported by a third party credit bureau, will be exempt from deposit requirements. For others, a deposit equal to two times the highest bill or $300 (whichever is greater) may be required. Other factors may be used in determining deposit requirements. The deposit for a commercial account is based on estimated usage (two months' billing) or a load sheet provided by a licensed electrician.
Additional Deposit: An additional deposit may be required if a collection or return check notice is issued.
Returned Check: Returned check fees are pursuant to Florida Statutes.
Delinquent Bills and Fees: Bills for electric service become past due approximately twenty days after the billing date. Both the billing date and the past due date are printed on your bill. A 1.5%, but not less than, $5 late charge will apply to all unpaid balances as of 5:00 p.m. on the past due date.
Monthly bills include a collection notice of past due amounts. If payment is not received by 5 p.m. on the date indicated on the "Collection Notice", a $25 collection trip fee and/or termination of service may result the following workday. If disconnected, there will be a $40 reconnect fee (during normal business hours) or a $75 reconnect fee (after hours, weekends or holidays) and an additional deposit may be required before restoring service.
Meter Reading: Electric meters are read each month.
Access to Meter: Occasionally, WREC will need access to your property to service and inspect our equipment. Providing access to meters and other equipment is the responsibility of each member.
Meter Tampering: Meter tampering, or any other method of power diversion is illegal and may result in prosecution.
Refund of Deposit: Security deposits will be refunded without interest to all residential members when service has been connected for 24 months and payments were made prior to the past due date.
