Do I have to pay a deposit?
Residential: All utilities, including Flathead Electric, are mandated by the federal government to require a credit check through your Social Security number. This credit check will determine if a minimum deposit of $150 is required. If deposit is required, it will be refunded after one full year of on time payments or when you leave our service territory. If you choose to enroll in our Flex Pay program, a deposit is not required.
New Construction: A deposit on new construction is based on the estimated load of the service.
Commercial: A deposit, surety bond or irrevocable letter of credit is required for all new businesses.
