Electric Cooperative, Inc. is a "self-read" system. That is, our members
provide their own monthly meter readings to the Co-op. We do not employ meter readers to reduce operating costs. Your monthly billed
amount depends upon the reading you provide to us. Monthly readings must
be provided to us as set forth in the Cooperative's operating policies.
How do I read my meter?
In order to get the most accurate picture possible of your electric usage,
we suggest that you read your meter on the same day every month. Think
of it as a 30-day period.
If you do not read your meter on the same day each month, you run the risk
of developing a variable billing cycle, which can cause your bills to be
either artificially high or low. Many high-bill concerns can be traced
to irregular meter readings.
If you fail to send a reading for two (2) consecutive months, we will read the meter and add a $20.00 charge to your account.
You may submit your meter reading via on-line payment program or pay by phone 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 330-674-1055 (local) & 866-674-1055 (toll-free).
