Apply for Membership and Electric Service
We require new members and existing members to complete both the Application for Membership and Electric Service and the Red Flag Rule forms, provide proof of government-issued photo ID, provide proof of business registration and ownership, if membership is business, and if rental property, a copy of the rental agreement and contact information for the landlord is requested or if property is purchased, a copy of the purchase agreement may be requested.
We may require a security deposit paid prior to start of service for a customer who has not previously had service with Sierra Electric Cooperative and cannot establish an acceptable credit rating (letter of credit from established gas, water or electric utility for current 12-month period), or a Sierra Electric Cooperative customer who has on three or more occasions, within a 12-month period, received a final notice, or as a condition of re-connection of service following discontinuance of service by Sierra Electric Cooperative, or for a customer who in an unauthorized manner has interfered with or diverted the service of Sierra Electric Cooperative on or about the premise.
New Service or Upgrade Service
A request for new service, an upgrade to an existing service or service relocation is different than starting service at an existing service point. You may choose to complete a Consumer Inquiry Form for New Service, Service Upgrade or Service Relocation and submit it to our office, however you must follow up and contact our office to make an appointment with the Staking Technician. There are requirements to be met to comply with Sierra Electric's Line Extension Policy.
To expedite the start service process, we have established an online form in which you can submit the information online; this submission is delivered to our e-mail at email@example.com. Our e-mail is not monitored 24/7; requests to connect service must be made by telephone to guarantee start of service.
Important Disclaimer: Completing this form does not guarantee acceptance by Sierra Electric Cooperative, Inc.; a customer service representative will contact you to complete the process.
Service will not be connected until a customer service representative has been able to reach the customer to verify requirements are met.
