Landlords and property management companies can manage the electricity service provided to their rental units by signing a Landlord Agreement. Landlords may sign an agreement authorizing Newfoundland Power to automatically transfer responsibility for the service to the landlord when a tenant moves out. This ensures the electricity remains on at the property and is available immediately for a new tenant. The application fee for the Landlord is waived under this agreement. Alternatively the Landlord can opt to disconnect the power at the property between tenants, but a fee will be charged upon reconnection.
When you register your properties on a Landlord Agreement we will notify you when:
- a new tenant requests service (moves in);
- a tenant requests a final read (moves out);
- the electricity service is disconnected due to an outstanding issue with a tenant; and,
- the electricity service is reconnected following resolution of the issue.
