Building a home
We know it takes teamwork in order to make any project go according to plans.
When applying for electric service (new or existing) there are steps to follow in an effort to expedite the process. It's a good idea to give us a call or plan on stopping by our office to take care of business.
County Permit - The permit number is needed when applying for service. Apply for your permit at the county offices. This is needed for construction of new services only.
Signed Easement - The REMC requires a signed, notarized easement on file before any work can be done. This is required for both new and existing services unless a recorded easement already exists. The names on the easement must be exactly as recorded on the property deed. (The easement form is at the bottom of this page)
Signatures Required - The REMC requires a signature for both the Service Application and the Membership Application. These forms are created once you apply for service via phone. The forms can be sent via fax, e-mail or you can stop by the office during business hours.
Business hours are Monday - Friday 7:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. (812) 246-3316 or (800) 462-6988
Application Fee - A non-refundable application fee is required prior to your service being connected.The fee is $25.00 per occurrence and not only includes the fieldwork but also the administrative costs of doing business.This fee is non-refundable.
Security Deposit - The REMC will run an on-line credit check when applying for service. If your credit score is unsatisfactory, a security deposit equal to a two month average bill will be required before electric service is connected.
The REMC accepts Discover, MasterCard and VISA for your convenience.
