Start - Open New Business Account

To set up your new business account, we need the following:

  • Credit check in the business name (depending on the class) - available for a fee from a credit reporting agency (e.g. Equifax) that meets our Good Payment History criteria.

An Account Set Up fee of $30.00 plus HST will appear on your first bill.

Security Deposit

We apply security deposits to all non-residential customers, regardless of rate class or owner/tenant status, except those customers who meet certain conditions as outlined below. Deposits are based on 2.5 months of service at the property or based on another account operating as a similar business of equal size. You can also provide an automatically-renewing, irrevocable letter of credit from a bank, as defined in the Bank Act, 1991, c.46, at the discretion of the customer. Service will be withheld for non-payment of the security deposit.

Deposits on commercial accounts and farm accounts are held for 5 years of good payment history and industrial deposits are held for 7 years of good payment history. On the last business day of each year, interest incurred from the deposit, is applied to your account. Upon annual review of your business deposit, an increase or decrease may be applied to your account based on 12 months of consumption.

A security deposit may be waived subject to the following conditions:

  1. Good payment history (min. 5 years) with Energy+ Inc. (or Brant County Power Inc., Cambridge and North Dumfries Hydro Inc.)
