We can connect or disconnect power between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday to Friday - no weekend or holiday calls. If you are connecting service with Nova Scotia Power, there is a $28.00 connection charge which will be applied to your first bill for the new location. There is no charge for service disconnection. Please ensure Nova Scotia Power has access to your meter at these times so that we may perform the required service.

A deposit may be requested from existing customers who have not had a good payment history with Nova Scotia Power.  If a deposit is required, the amount is equivalent to 3 months service at the address you are moving to. Your deposit will be returned after two years of perfect payment history.

Bi-Monthly Billing - You will be billed every two months for the actual energy you have used.

Equal Billing - With this plan, you'll receive a bill for a fixed amount every month based on past electrical consumption for the location you are moving to. Every 12 months we'll compare the amount of electricity you've used to the amount you have paid. The balance is automatically rolled into the next year's fixed monthly payment amount.

In submitting this form the customer acknowledges and agrees to the following conditions:

The applicant agrees to take and pay for electricity from Nova Scotia Power in accordance with this application and to accept and pay for such services according to the rates, rules and regulations of Nova Scotia Power Inc.
