When moving to a new residence, you always face many last-minute details. One detail that we can make easier is connecting your electric service at your new residence.

If you are moving from one residence in our service area to another, please notify your BVU representative. We will work with your schedule to disconnect electric service at your existing address and have your service connected at your new address on the dates that you request.
