How the Penalty Fees Work

Randolph Electric offers a complete list of fees charged by the company for connection, disconnection, late payments and other charges associated with non-payment.

  • Deposit: Customers will be charged a deposit ranging from $0 to $400 at the time service is started. The deposit amount depends on current credit score. If a customer is late making payments or has service disconnected, Randolph Electric reserves the right to collect a deposit after service is started even if the customer initially passed the credit check.
  • Late fee: A late fee of 1.5% of the past due balance will be added to all past due bills. There is a minimum charge of $3.50 and a maximum charge of $50.
  • Meter tampering: If the company finds a customer tampered with a meter, they will be charged $200 plus a $400 deposit. This fee is in addition to the estimated amount of electric service used but not paid for due to tampering. If the customer is cited for a second offense, the charge is $300 plus electric charges.
  • Trip charge: $40 per visit if associated with collecting a past due bill or disconnecting/reconnecting service due to non-payment.

  1. My August bill was not paid on time. They were here to disconnect my electric and I called and tried to get them to not disconnect but they did anyway. I spoke with the lady and she would not give me twenty minutes to go to social services to have the bill paid since I had to wait for the disconnect notice to take them before they would assist with the electric bill. I was humiliated and felt like I was having to beg to keep my service. They disconnected and took the meter with him and i had to get a reconnect fee paid the next time.

  2. My son down the road has not worked since Christmas 2013, can’t find a job either. He owes about 500 dollars now, had a couple of extensions. They said they would cut it off June 28 and now sent another letter to him saying they cutting it off June 3 now. They also said you have to pay it in full, not just one month behind amount. The social services will not help, they said they are broke, so people out there you are wasting your time going to social services in NC. He had been down to places like Christian outreach but since he has no job and has not a penny, they said they could not help him at all. Not that is a new one if I ever heard it. So much for NC. Who care. So, when they cut his electric off, he will have no place to put his food to keep it from spoiling. Ain’t this great. About like trying to find a job, who cares. NO ONE !
