Residential Start/Stop Service

What to do if you are new to South Hadley, moving across town,
or need service suspended or stopped.

Start Service

New customers will need to complete an application for service: you can use the online form linked below or visit our office during business hours to complete a hard copy version. There is no fee for initiating or canceling an account, although a security deposit may be required.

Security Deposits

No security deposit is required if you are the property owner and personally sign for the electric service. If you are a renter or other party besides the owner of record, a security deposit will be required: $300 for conventional residential service, or $600 for a residence with electric heat.

If you have an outstanding balance from another SHELD account, you must make arrangements to pay that balance before new service is started. Please see SHELD's terms and conditions for electric service (PDF) for additional information.
