ANEC will construct at no cost, up to 1,000 feet of single phase overhead distribution line to serve a new member-consumer. A charge may be required for overhead line extensions over 1,000 feet.
Underground distribution construction is considered a special service and therefore in most cases there will be a charge to the member-consumer who wishes to have the facilities placed underground. The charge for the underground facilities is the estimated cost difference between the overhead facilities that would be constructed at no cost and the desired underground facilities.
Deposits are generally required at time of connect unless the consumer has a prior good credit rating with us or can furnish a letter of satisfactory credit from their previous power supplier. Interest is paid on deposits at a rate determined by the Virginia State Corporation Commission. Residential deposits are applied to your bill once good credit has been established for one year. Commercial deposits are applied after a period of two years.
Right-of-way easements are a pre-construction requirement if necessary to build facilities.
