2023 Rate Change FAQs

Community Electric Co-op announces a new rate structure, effective for members April 2023. Safety, reliability and affordability remain the main focus of our board and staff at CEC. We are a member-owned cooperative, and strive every day to provide the reliable, quality service you have come to know and expect. Any decision to implement a new rate structure is not done lightly and we have done everything possible to minimize the impact on the members.

Members will see the greatest difference in the new rate structures in the base charge, and low-use members will have the greatest impact. By structuring the new rates around the base charge, we are ensuring that expectations for continuous power and outstanding member services are met. It gives each member an equitable share of the Cooperative’s operations. It also provides funds that must be invested to maintain the safety, reliability and affordability of the Cooperative that you can continue to count on for years to come.
