BTES requires a deposit of two times the highest bill at the location at which you are applying for. A general power customer with a calculated standard deposit of $20,000 or less, which has a principal owner who has lived in our service area five or more years with good pay and credit history and is willing to guarantee the account, may have the deposit reduced or waived. *Deposit requirements must be met before an application will be processed. Deposits are refunded after the customer no longer has an account with BTES, at which time the last bill will be deducted. Any remaining balance will be billed/refunded to the customer.
