Commercial Service

Receiving Commercial Service
The Manassas Utility requires a 24-hour notice at the time of application and deposits are payable in the form of cash, check, or money order. For deposit requirements, please contact our office at 703-257-8219.

For new service or transfer of service, there is a non-refundable service charge. This charge can be paid at the time of application or it may be applied to your first utility bill.

Service Charges
Type of Service Fee
Electric Only $25
Electric and Water $50

Should disconnection of your utility service occur due to non-payment, a deposit increase, reconnection charge, and full payment of the account is required before reconnection of service can be initiated. A valid business license, proof of the validity of the corporation, and an occupancy or special use permit are required for all commercial customers.

Security Deposits
Security deposits may be waived with an acceptable letter of credit or an irrevocable letter of credit. Letters of credit issued by a previous utility company must be current and contain at least two years of history. These letters can be faxed to our office at 703-257-5794 or mailed to:

Manassas Utility Department
P.O.Box 192
Manassas, VA 20108.

Letters of credit will not be accepted if they contain more than two late charges. Security deposits are placed on accounts for a period of two years. If after two years, there are no disconnect notices, no returned checks, and no more than one late charge, the deposit is applied to the account as a credit. Should you request to disconnect your service before two years, the deposit is then applied to your account and any remaining credit will be refunded provided there are no additional fees due.
