The Value of Membership

Welcome to Midstate Electric Cooperative (MEC). We are pleased to be your electric service provider and that you have become a member-owner of MEC.

Prepaid Billing

Prepaid Billing (previously called PowerPay) puts you in control. You can pay as little or as much as you wish, whenever you want. Best of all, with Prepaid Billing there is no deposit required and no credit check, no late fees - no more surprises on your monthly bill. 

MEC members currently on Prepaid Billing report a high level of satisfaction with the program and statistics indicate that participants in prepaid utility programs tend to reduce their consumption because they are more aware of how they are using their Energy.

PowerView Usage Monitoring

PowerView is an energy-awareness/monitoring service offered by MEC for our members who wish to remain on traditional monthly billing but who want to take a more active role in monitoring electric use.

Statistics show that those who monitor or track their energy use on a regular basis, use less energy. By knowing how much energy is used every day, members are empowered to adjust their lifestyle resulting in energy savings of 10-15%.

Member Programs and Services

In the spirit of serving our members and our communities, MEC offers Operation RoundUp®. Operation RoundUp® is a national program that's been serving rural communities for over three decades. Since its inception, the program has been adopted by 260 electric cooperatives, and has generated $50 million in charitable donations. Each month, your electric bill can be voluntarily "rounded up" to the nearest whole dollar amount with the extra change going into a separate Operation RoundUp® fund to be donated to organizations throughout MEC's service area.

Midstate Electric Cooperative belongs to a statewide association called ORECA (Oregon Rural Electric Cooperative Association).  Its role, on behalf of Oregon cooperatives, is to lobby lawmakers and state officials for legislation that supports our mission against mandates that jeopardize cooperative values.  MEC will be actively involved working with other Oregon electric cooperatives through ORECA to remind lawmakers about the importance of affordable and reliable electricity. We can’t do this alone.
