Special Note to
Landlords & Tenants
If you are renting a home or apartment, your Tenant will be required to submit an executed copy of the lease agreement before Tri-County Electric can offer service. Should you, as the landlord, have a period during which you have no tenant, you can call Customer Service to have Tri-County Electric transfer the electric bill temporarily to you while you are getting your property ready for the next renter.
