Late Fee

$5.00 — Amount due is greater than $30.00, but less than $100.00.

$10.00 — Amount due is $100.00 or greater.

Collection Fee

When a Cooperative employee visits the property to disconnect service for failure to pay, the customer may be given the opportunity to make payment rather than be disconnected. If the member elects to pay, a $25.00 collection charge will be assessed. This charge will be applied for every instance when an employee is sent to a property to disconnect service, but the member chooses to pay their bill, postponing disconnection.

Reconnect Fee

A reconnect fee must be paid by the member in order to restore service when the service has been disconnected due to failure to pay an outstanding balance.

Monday–Friday, 8:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m.

Monday–Friday, after 4:00 p.m.






Insufficient Fund Fees

Checks and Electronic transfers received as payment of electric bills rendered or services of the Cooperative which are returned to the Cooperative unpaid by the member's bank and authorized attempts by the Cooperative to draft members accounts will result in an additional charge of $35.00 per check, bank draft or credit card draft attempt per occurrence.
