Landlords and property managers can enter into a Landlord Agreement with Alectra Utilities to transfer or disconnect electricity service between tenants.
Option 1 – Transfer Agreement
By signing a Landlord Transfer Agreement, you can authorize Alectra Utilities to automatically transfer responsibility for a rental unit’s electricity service to you when a tenant moves out. This means you save on paying a new account set up fee. It also ensures the electricity remains in service at the property for lights, heat, and appliances and that a new tenant doesn’t have to request reconnection and pay the associated fees.
- When a tenant closes their account, we will email you to let you know the service has been transferred to your account.
- The Transfer Agreement includes your electricity rate option choice for Time-of-Use or Tiered Pricing.
- Where applicable, you assume responsibility for the water account and related charges.
Option 2 – Disconnection Agreement:
By signing a Landlord Disconnection Agreement, you elect not to become the interim account holder and decline continued electricity service to the Rental Premises when a tenant closes their electricity account. Alectra Utilities will disconnect the electricity service to the rental premise on the date the tenant closes their account. This means that the electricity is not in service at the property for lights, heat, and appliances. As well, service reconnection and new account charges will apply to the new tenant when opening an account. Where applicable, you assume responsibility for the water account and related charges.
