Spouse / Roommate Information

This agreement, when signed by the consumer shall become a contract, under which ECU agrees to furnish water, wastewater and/or electric service to the location listed above. The below signed Consumer agrees to be responsible for receipt and payment of bill for these services, including any applicable service charges, late fees, sales tax or municipal fee if applicable. (Note: Failure to receive a monthly bill does not relieve Consumer of payment responsibility. If a bill is not received, the Consumer should contact the ECU office before the due date for a duplicate copy.)

It is further agreed that ECU reserves the right to discontinue service(s) if the Consumer breaches the contract. If service is disconnected for any reason, the Consumer agrees to pay all outstanding bills and an applicable reconnection fee for service(s) to be restored. Additional deposits and late fees may also be required before reconnection. Legal action will be taken against the Consumer when utility services are found to be tampered with.

I authorize ECU to verify this information on this application to include requesting reports from credit reporting agencies. I am aware that this information will be used to determine my deposit requirements. Deposits may be returned after two years with good payment history.

By signing this application for service(s), the Consumer agrees to pay all costs of collection of the Consumer’s unpaid bill. The Commission of ECU has the right pursuant to the South Carolina Setoff Debt Collection Act (SDCA) to collect any sum due and owed by the Consumer through offset of the Consumer’s state income tax refund. If the Commission chooses to purse debts owed by the Consumer through the SDCA, the Consumer agrees to pay all fees and costs incurred through the setoff process, including fees charged by the Department of Revenue, The South Carolina Association of Counties, The Municipal Association of South Carolina, and/or the Commission of ECU. If the Commission chooses to pursue debts in a manner other than SDCA, Consumer agrees to pay the costs and fees associated with the selected manner as well.

I have read and understand the conditions of this contract and agree to accept the terms as stated.
