Application for Membership

Why do I need to sign the “Application for Membership” Form

Elmhurst Mutual Power and Light (EMP&L) has been owned by our members since 1922. The requirement to have an approved Application for Membership Form directly helps EMP&L provide the lowest cost of energy to our customers and owners.   
Any electric service provided by EMP&L must have an Account and the Owner of the Account must be the property owner.  The Application for Membership Form, once approved by EMP&L, acknowledges that the Owner of the Account agrees to abide by the Rules of EMP&L (see below, section II B from the Service Rules).  If the Owner does not sign the Application for Membership Form, then EMP&L will terminate delivery of energy (see below, section X D of the Service Rules).
 Again, the approved Membership form provides EMP&L staff the confirmation that the Member will abide by the rules of EMP&L and confirms who is responsible for that Service and Account, thus lowering the cost of administration for all of our members.
 Thank you for your understanding…it keeps our costs low and service levels high!
