Residential moving FAQs 

We’re sorry, AES Ohio is not able to process start service requests for new customers online. Establishing service for the first time requires us to verify your identity, so calling is the most efficient way for AES Ohio to get you connected.

We recommend placing your service request at least 3 business days before you would like to start, stop or transfer service.

We need this information to determine if a security deposit or guarantor is needed on your account. By setting up your service, AES Ohio is giving you a line of credit, because you receive your service before you pay for the electricity. Just as you would have to update a loan application each time you apply for credit, we also need to update your information each time you apply for service, since it requires extending credit.

A refundable deposit may be required if you are starting or transferring service, depending on your AES Ohio payment history and historical energy usage at the new address. Learn more.

The deposit can be waived if there is a guarantor on the account or with a letter of credit from another utility company for new residential applicants. Learn more.
