Important Message Regarding Rate Adjustments

Due to the results of a cost of service study, The Energy Cooperative’s Board of Directors has approved the following rate adjustments:

Residential Electric Members:
Effective on all electric bills received after January 1, 2018, the monthly Facilities Fee will be adjusted from $25 to $26 per month. There will be no change for the monthly Generation and Transmission Charge and the Distribution Energy Chargeso they will remain the same.

Residential Natural Gas Members:
Effective on all natural gas bills received after January 1, 2018, the monthly Facilities Fee will be adjusted from $21 to $22 per month. There will be no change in the monthly Distribution Charge so it will remain the same.

To continuously provide Cooperative members with safe, reliable energy at a moment’s notice, The Energy Cooperative (TEC) must maintain system equipment such as electric lines, poles, pipelines, and meters. TEC must also perform record
keeping and administrative tasks. The monthly Facilities Fee covers the cost of these services. These costs do not vary with consumption. They are charged equally to all members so that each member can have reliable service at any time. Whether you
use a lot or a little energy each month, the cost of providing electricity or natural gas to your home or business remains the same no matter the time of year.

If you have questions regarding these rate adjustments, please contact our Member Service Department at (800) 255-6815.
