I'm going to sign a lease very soon and I was wondering how much I should expect on paying to pay to put the power on? Fees etc.

Depends on your usage.
There's a thread (or 2) on this if you use search topic above.
Here's WAPA's website.

Your landlord should be able to give you an idea of costs.
Are you setting up your own WAPA account for rental or will bill remain in owners name andcome to you thru the landlord?

My own WAPA account.

edit: search the forum for "wapa rates" only three threads popped up. I go into talk to the listing agent so I could also ask her. I just wanted to be proactive.

The deposit is based on average monthly usage for the unit, in other words one month's deposit - not a huge amount unless you're renting a multi-bedroom with a pool and central A/C! Just ask the listing agent to get you that information.

Don't forget that, unless provided by the landlord, you'll also have to pay a deposit for TV and internet services.

Thanks all. I'm aware of the internet deposit too. I'm not moving in for a few weeks so that isn't as important right now. There's some minor repairs that need to be done. I don't need cable/dish ... my Apple TV is all I need.

Just make sure you can get internet service.
Some locations more problematic than others.
Ditto for cell service.
