Due to concerns regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, and following the recommendation of the CDC, the Board of Trustees and Management of Clinton County Electric Cooperative has made the decision to postpone the Cooperative’s Annual Meeting that was scheduled for Thursday, March 19th at Central Community High School.
The Cooperative will continue to monitor the situation to determine if the meeting will be rescheduled at later date. We will keep the membership informed of any additional decisions through our newsletter, website, Facebook page and local media.

Clinton County Electric Cooperative’s wholesale power provider, Southern Illinois Power Cooperative (SIPC), plans to retire its largest coal-fired generator as early as this fall. A move that is expected to save $125 million over a decade.
The tentative decision is the result of analysis and negotiations that have been ongoing since late 2019. The decision to close Unit 4, as it is known, was based on two primary factors: sustained low energy prices in the wholesale power market, and increasingly costly environmental regulations for coal-fired generators.
The Illinois Electric Cooperative (IEC) Memorial Scholarship Program will again award twelve $2,000 scholarships to deserving students in the “electric cooperative family” entering college to assist them with their educational costs.

Throughout the year, trees will be trimmed and right-of-ways will be mowed and/or sprayed in areas served by our Trenton, Shattuc, and Keyesport 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 Mascoutah Substations. Osmose will probably start their work in February and should be done sometime during the spring of 2020.
