Start Electric Service - Florida

Establishing a new business and need service established in your name? Then complete the online Start Electric Service form below.

All required city and county inspections must be completed prior to connecting your permanent electric service. An electrical inspection is required for newly constructed homes or manufactured homes. 

Since electricity is billed after it is used, a security deposit or deposit alternative is required before completing your business application for service. We will contact you either by e-mail or phone to provide additional instructions.

We are looking forward to providing electric service to your new business. We have provided answers to several frequently asked questions to assist you in opening your business account. After your completed request is transmitted to our secure site, our Business Specialist will review your request and will respond within three business days, between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 6:00 p.m. (Monday - Friday - except holidays), at which time we will provide your new account number and the deposit requirement for your new business.
