Delaware County Electric Cooperative’s Deposit Policy is designed to assess the credit risk associated with applications for service, while protecting the assets of our utility. 

It is important to note that most of our members will be charged no deposit, because they pose little credit risk.  Likewise, members who have not established credit or pose substantial credit risk will bear the financial burden of that risk through a credit-based deposit policy. 

As a result, DCEC requires that all applicants submit their date of birth and  social security number so we can process credit reports.  Any member who chooses not to submit a social security number will be charged the maximum deposit.
