Deposit and credit check

Since electricity is billed after it is used, we may require a security deposit before completing your request for service. We’ll perform a credit check to determine the deposit amount for new Duke Energy customers, as well as former or existing customers.

Electrical inspections

An electrical inspection is required for newly constructed homes or manufactured homes. You must complete all required city and county inspections before we can connect your permanent electric service.

Move service

If your previous residence was served by Duke Energy and you need the service for the old location taken out of your name, visit the move electric service page.

Stop service

Are you moving and need to cancel service for your residence? To stop service and billing log in to your Duke Energy account.
