Moving into an Existing Service
If you are a new member moving into an existing service please contact our office as soon as possible. Services will be connected the following business day once all the necessary information is received in our office.
Deposit Requirements: A security deposit for a residential service is required prior to electric service connection. The deposit is based on the highest bill at that location for the past 12 month period. Deposits can be paid by cash, check, or credit card. A deposit will be refunded after 12 consecutive months of prompt payment (which may be 11 timely payments and one automatic forgiveness of late payment).
In lieu of a deposit, Southern Iowa Electric will accept a letter of credit from your previous electric company providing it shows the past 12 months of history with no more than 2 late payments.

Address of Service Location
Date Taking Possession

Reconnects: A reconnect fee of $75.00 will be charged if connecting a service that has previously been in your name.
Inspection Permits: If a service has been disconnected for 6 months or longer, it is required to pass an electrical inspection by a State of Iowa electrical inspector.
