Credit History / Account Information

In order to open a new account for you, Nova Scotia Power requires an acceptable payment history or credit history, or a security deposit.

If you have previously held an account with NS Power in your name, please complete the fields below with the requested information about your past account so that your NS Power payment history can be assessed.

If you are a new customer to Nova Scotia Power and do not have a previous payment history with us, we will need to perform an external credit check or apply a security deposit to complete your request. For this purpose, please provide the following information, including information relating to your last residence in the address fields, and indicate by checking the appropriate box below whether you would like a credit check to be conducted. This information will be used to carry out a credit check (if requested) and then added to your account profile when processing your account opening request.

In the event of poor payment history with Nova Scotia Power or credit check results that do not meet Nova Scotia Power’s credit requirement, a security deposit will be required to process your account opening request. Security deposits may be applied in an amount up to or equal to estimated charges for three months’ service at the property for which you are requesting a power connection.
