Basic Fees & Charges
Coast Electric Power Association has established all fees and charges based on the reasonable and customary standard for our industry and local area.

A membership fee, service charge and deposit are required on new residential accounts. These fees are outlined in the Association’s Appendix A, schedule of fees and deposits.

Additional fees or aid-to-construction charges may be required when line construction is needed to bring electricity to your home property. These charges are determined by our engineering department based on factors such as distance from existing lines, number of poles and other line equipment to be installed.
