MVU provides provides both residential and commercial electric power services.

Starting Service for a Residence or Existing Commercial Location

  • Call Customer Service: 844.341.6469
    Call anytime — it's open 24 hours per day every day. During the service start-up process, you will be asked to verify your identity and establish credit with MVU.
  • Verify Your Identity
    During the service initiation process, MVU requests information about you and any co-applicant including:
    • Social security number (residence) or
      EIN (commercial)
    • Date of birth
    • Driver’s license number
    • Previous addresses
    • Employment information
    In compliance with federal regulations, MVU secures the storage and access of your personal and confidential information.

    Don't have a social security number?

    You will be asked to take two forms of identification to the MVU office to verify your identity. One of the two forms of identification must be a government issued picture identification. The MVU office is located at 14331 Frederick Street, Suite 2 Moreno Valley (map link).

  • Establish Credit
    MVU uses a credit rating evaluation to determine whether a deposit will be required on your account. The amount required for a deposit is based on an amount approximately twice the average monthly bill for electric service. See MVU’s current Rate Schedule for applicable fees and deposits.

    When a deposit is required, the amount of the deposit must be paid in full before starting electric service.

    If you have had service with MVU in the past 12 months with a good payment history, the deposit requirement may be waived.
