Establish Residential Utility Services
To establish utility services at your home, you must complete the Residential Service Contract application. Please review the information below and read the application in its entirety before completing the application.
Deposits / Credit Letters
A deposit will be required as a condition of service unless a valid credit reference letter from a previous utility company is received. A deposit will be required as a condition of service. Deposits are based on one-sixth (1/6) of the previous 12-month billing history at each location. A valid credit reference letter from your previous utility company must show a 12-month credit history within the last 24 months with no more than one late payment.
Credit references may be obtained by contacting your previous or current utility provider and requesting that a credit reference be emailed to [email protected] or faxed to Utilities Customer Care and Billing at (830) 249-2580. If a credit reference is not valid, service will not be turned on. You cannot assume that services will be turned on because you had a credit reference sent from a prior utility company. Please verify the validity with us.
The Residential Service Contract includes a request for a personal reference to allow for emergency contact in the event there is a problem with your utilities and you cannot be reached. This reference should be someone who would know how to contact you in the event of an emergency.
Submitting a Residential Service Contract
Each applicant must sign this form and must provide a valid US government issued identification card (ex. copy of valid US driver’s license). Service applied for by noon can be turned on the same day except for gas service. Gas service requires a prescheduled appointment and an adult (18 or older) be present when the gas is turned on. A copy of applicant's lease is required for apartments.
