Activate An Existing Service

To activate an existing LEC service, please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. We will need to determine what is necessary for your specific service location. If you would like to install new electrical service, please find information on new service installation here.

Some items for your consideration:

If you will be a new LEC member, a completed Member Information Form will need to be returned to LEC. Please complete the first page of the form, then sign and date the second page. If it is to be a joint account, please have both new members complete their information and provide a signature. Keep in mind that we will be able to discuss the account only with the member(s) who have submitted their information and signature on the Member Information Form.

If you are applying for membership as a corporation, partnership, political body or non-profit group, you will need to complete the correct Membership Information Form. You will also need to This email address is being protected from spambots.

For any new or additional service, LEC will need to evaluate your credit basis to determine deposit requirements. If no good credit history can be established, an account deposit will be required to activate the existing service. This deposit is calculated at two and a half times (2.5x) the highest bill or a fixed amount ($200 for 200Amp, $400 for 400Amp), whichever is greater. After you have established 12 months of good payment history with LEC, the deposit will be refunded as a credit to your account. If you are being assessed a deposit, you may want to consider participating in our FlexAdvantage Program.

If the service you wish to activate has been inactive or on line retention for 12 months or longer, you may be required to provide LEC with proof of a State of Montana electrical permit and inspection prior to the service being re-energized.

Once all completed paperwork and payments have been received by LEC, we will provide service to an existing location as quickly as possible.

As an LEC member, you can take advantage of our SmartHub online account management system. Once you have an active LEC account, you can enroll in SmartHub. On SmartHub, you can pay your bill, check your usage, submit questions or concerns, personalize your notifications, and sign up for our AutoPay program.
