Hey Jenny girl,
It depends on your credit history, etc.... not everyone needs to put a deposit down.

Oh OK, well our credit is great so I can just put zero on my spread sheet? Do you know how many different places I will have to call to set them up?

The hub passed so it is getting closer now. Now I am in total Type A mode I have lists, graphs and spread sheets on everything ROFL!

electric Residential | FPL | Deposits , what Big House said. At least it earns interest. I have never heard of getting paid 6 percent interest on a utility deposit.

Water/sewer, depends where you live. You might have a well/septic tank. I would be surprised if you had to put a deposit down for that though.

Thanks Antroxanautin~ I never heard of getting paid interest either. That's amazing. Thanks for the link, it explains how it works very clearly.

I appreciate your help

If FPL requires a deposit, they do pay interest, but you don't get your money back. It's applied to your bill as a credit.
