When you join the Orcas Power & Light Cooperative (OPALCO), you add to a long tradition of islanders joining together to provide services that enhance the viability and improve the quality of life for their community.
Fees and Deposits
You are required to pay a $5.00 membership fee that is refundable if you terminate your service. If there is more than one meter on an account, only one membership fee is required.
There is a non-refundable $25.00 service charge any time an account is created or transferred to a new name.
Electric service is used prior to its billing, and you may be required to post a deposit before service is connected.
