Must I Pay a Deposit to Begin Receiving Utility Services?

Customers having no previous credit history with Peru Utilities or any other utility service company must pay a deposit. New and existing customers who have received a disconnect notice from either Peru Utilities or their former utility supplier within the previous 12 months must pay a deposit.

Deposits may be waived for new customers who provide a letter of credit from a previous utility supplier that states that the customer has been a customer of that supplier for at least 12 consecutive months and has not received a disconnect notice from that supplier during the most recent 12 months. Deposits may also be waived for current customers wishing to transfer a service to another location provided that they have not had two or more late penalties or a disconnect within the most recent 12 months.
