A security deposit may be applied to your first bill. This deposit is 100% refundable after 12 months of on-time payments. There are also 2 ways to have this deposit waived: residents can submit a letter of credit or sign up for autopay.


letter of credit

To have your security deposit waived, send us a letter of credit from a previous utility provider showing that there were no more than two missed or late payments within a twelve month period. To obtain a Letter of Credit, simply contact your previous utility provider and request to have one faxed to us.

FAX YOUR LETTER OF CREDIT TO 1.866.295.4121 OR 614.448.4366

If you choose this method, please ask them to include your current address and NEP account number on the document to ensure it is attached to the appropriate account.

enroll in autopay

If you sign up for the Autopay Service (ACH), your security deposit is waived while you are enrolled. Log into your Resident Account and create a new Autopay Schedule. Your Autopay start date must be at least 7 days before your due date to take effect and avoid the security deposit being deducted. Autopay is designed to pay the full balance owed, and payments are automatically withdrawn each month on your scheduled due date. You may enroll with the payment method of your choice, including a checking or savings account, or a credit or debit card. Cancellation of Autopay will result in the security deposit being reapplied to your account.



Late Fees


NEP provides metering and billing services on behalf of your community owner or community association. Failure to receive a bill does not change the due date or possibility of disconnection due to non-payment. A late fee of $20 will be assessed for past due balances over $100. 

A $30 charge may be applied to your account for all payments not honored by the bank for any reason, including, but not limited to: insufficient funds (NSF), account closed, payment stopped, no signature, and improperly drawn or submitted. 

All fees are subject to change per your community’s request.
