Deposits & Fees

Security Deposits

Although most of our service area includes electric and water service, some locations are only served electric and some are only served water.
  • Commercial accounts: determined on individual basis
  • Residential power and water service: $275
  • Residential power service only: $200
  • Residential water service only: $75
A residential security deposit can be avoided if you have had electric service with Marietta Power within the past year and maintained a good credit rating for at least 12 months. Deposits may be less if you authorize Marietta Power to access your credit information and the report is favorable.

Deposits are held for the duration of the account; however, interest is paid yearly.


For new accounts or service transfers you will be required to pay a $25 service charge that will be included on your first utility bill. Based on the type of service requested, a security deposit may be required.
