At the October 2013 regular board meeting, the Board of Trustees approved management’s recommendations of restructuring the Cooperative Rate Schedules. Unfortunately, all members will be receiving a slight increase in electric rates. The average member will see a 4% increase in their bill due to the increase of facilities charges and the reduction of the difference between the first and second energy blocks in most rates. The new rates will go into effect for the Feb. 2014 bills. To find out how much of an increase you may see, please check out our Rate Calculator. You will need a copy of a past electric bill to help answer the prompts as you begin.
Visit the Cooperative Action Network or watch this message from The Association of Illinois Electric Cooperatives to learn more about the current and proposed laws and regulations that could effect the cost of your electricity. You can also send a message via Action.coop to the government asking them to withdraw their proposal and work with electric cooperatives on a common sense solution that balances energy needs and environmental concerns.
