The term of service that I am agreeing to is variable, month-to-month. I hereby make an application for membership in NEC, subject to a $15 MEMBERSHIP FEE (unless already a NEC member) and approval by the Board of Directors. I understand this agreement is subject to applicable provisions of the Bylaws of the Cooperative as they exist and any modifications thereto properly approved and authorized from time to time, I understand that: (i) the membership fee is refundable only upon termination of electric service provided that all debts and obligations have been paid; (ii) the membership fee may be placed in my membership account and that said account may also be used to facilitate distributions, if any; (iii) upon termination of electric service, the funds in my membership account shall normally be refunded if I am able to be located; (iv) the membership fee is non-transferable and that no interest shall be payable or accrue on the membership fee or other monies held in a member’s capital account; and (v) my member capital account may be used to offset losses incurred by the Cooperative. NEC Co-op Energy may contact me at any time by phone methods, mail or e-mail. I am aware of the Cooperative Bylaws and tariff (only applicable for NEC wires area and can be seen at www.nueceselectric.org) provisions and I agree to comply with and be bound by the Articles of Incorporation and Bylaws of the Cooperative and any rules and regulations adopted by the Board. I can view the Bylaws, Articles and rules or tariff at nueceselectric.org or can request a written copy of them.
If satisfactory credit is not proven, I understand that I may be required to pay a deposit. If required, the deposit must be received by NEC Co-op Energy before an enrollment/switch is processed. I understand that if I fail to comply with PUCT Substantive Rule §25.478, I may be denied service. I understand that any deposit will be retained, earning interest, by the cooperative until refunded according to the terms of service. I also understand that I may be required to pay a deposit if I am deemed now (or in the future) to be a credit risk to the Cooperative.
