Due to the uncertainties surrounding COVID-19, the Clinton County Electric Cooperative Board of Trustees voted to cancel their Annual Meeting of the Membership, originally scheduled for March 19, 2020. Information that would’ve been shared at the meeting, including a recap of 2019, can be found in the September Illinois County Living Magazine.

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 all areas, but those served by our Albers, Breese, and Mascoutah Substations will be thoroughly vetted 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 Breese Substation. Osmose will probably start their work in February and should be done sometime during the spring of 2021.
