Businesses seeking to establish new service may do so at our office located at 312 N Division Street in Union City. The applicant will need to provide a copy of the lease agreement or rent receipt if renting the location. Additionally, two forms of identification will also be required. There is a $15.00 connection fee for all new connections of service. UCEA may also require a security deposit – see the UCEA Deposit Policy below. For existing service locations, we can typically start your service the same day that you apply.
Customers who desire to transfer their service from one location to another within the UCEA service territory, may do so either by phone (731-885-9212) or in person at the UCEA office.
If you are building a new commercial building, please call us at 731-885-9212 and speak with our Engineering Department prior to construction to discuss the location of your electric service and to establish temporary service during construction.
Deposit Policy For Commercial Customers
UCEA requires that all commercial and industrial accounts provide a deposit in an amount equivalent to two months peak consumption. This amount will be estimated by UCEA in instances where there is no historical information for that location; however, UCEA reserves the right to adjust the deposit required where the actual consumption exceeds this estimate.
Commercial/Industrial deposits will be held by UCEA for the duration of the period in which service is rendered. Deposits may be in the form:
- Certificate of Deposit titled jointly with UCEA
- Utility Surety Bond
Commercial customers will earn interest at the UCEA stated rate, and the interest earned will be rolled into the customer’s deposit each January.
