Clark County REMC will be updating its policy on collecting security deposits beginning in June.
When applying for new service, or when restoring service that has been disconnected for non-payment, members may be required to pay up to a three-month security deposit. This is the first change to this policy in decades and is made to protect the short-and long-term financial health of the entire REMC membership.
However, we understand that paying two or three months of electric bills as a security deposit is simply not possible for many families. So here are a few ways we are working to help support every family, whatever their situation may be:
1. No security deposit will be required after the first disconnect for non-payment. We are waiving that as a courtesy to all members, understanding that sometimes, things just happen.
2. REMC offers prepaid billing, which requires NO SECURITY DEPOSIT! You can manage your bill the same way you would a prepaid cell phone, or gas in your car. Call our office for more details, or visit ClarkREMC.coop/prepaid.
