$200 deposit required for Duke Energy?

I currently live in Fuquay and have been a Progress Energy customer (in good standing) since 2008. I am moving to Durham next week, which is a Duke Energy market. I am being told there is a $200 deposit for all new customers, regardless of credit. They run an internal credit check on all new customers – meaning they check their system for your existing information…KNOWING you aren't a customer. I know I will get it back in a year, but its the principle that irritates me. Anyone else have this issue?
