This fee shall not apply to the establishment of service for a new seasonal customer.

Terms of Payment: The above rates are net. Payment of the current monthly bill shall be within 25 days from the date of mailing. In the event that the bill is not paid within the 25 day period, the charges become subject to a late payment charge as established in the Terms and Conditions.
Seasonal Reconnection Fee: EMEC's rates are designed to cover the cost of serving each rate class. Because seasonal accounts cost as much to serve as other accounts but do not pay their cost in per-kWh charges, a larger portion of the seasonal rate is its monthly flat charge. If a seasonal service is disconnected and reconnected less than eight months later, a seasonal reconnect fee will be charged, equal to eight seasonal flat charges. After March 1, 2019, that seasonal reconnection fee will amount to $139.60.
