Security deposit requirements

We charge a security deposit for new Tillsonburg Hydro customers who don’t:

  • Have sufficient credit history with Tillsonburg Hydro
  • Have a letter of credit from another utility company
  • Sign up for a pre-authorized payment program

Your security deposit will be charged within up to six of your first bills and refunded one year after the date of your last deposit payment.

To find out if you will be charged a security deposit, or to figure out the amount of your required deposit, please call us at 519-842-9200.

How we calculate deposit fees

For newly constructed homes, we calculate the security deposit fee based on the square footage of the property. For existing homes, the deposit fee is 2.5 times the average monthly usage of the previous occupants.
