At the regular meeting of the Clinton County Electric Cooperative Board of Trustees held on November 27, 2018, a $600,000 rate increase was approved effective with March 2019 usage included on the April 2019 bills. Back in January of 2018 SIPC increased wholesale power costs to CCEC by 5.13%. This increase is the driving factor influencing the rate increase for 2019. The last time CCEC implemented a rate increase was five years ago in January 2014.
At the Regular Meeting of the Board of Trustees on April 24, 2018, the board approved a change to CCEC’s high efficiency heating and cooling program.Please see the July, 2018 Illinois Country Living magazine or contact the cooperative office, Monday thru Friday from 7a.m. to 4 p.m at 800-526-7282.
Throughout the year, trees will be trimmed and right-of-ways will be mowed and/or sprayed in areas served by our Bartleso, Ferrin, and Old State Substations by CCEC and/or our contractor: Rensing Tree Service.
CCEC has again contracted with Osmose Utilities Service to inspect and treat (as needed) all electric utility poles served out of the Shattuc I and Keyesport Substations. Osmose will probably start their work in February and should be done sometime during the spring of 2019.
