Electric rates for MEC members are adopted and approved by the Board of Directors. The revenues collected from the rates are used to cover the cost of providing service, paying for equipment and maintenance, and for paying off loans – no more, no less.

The cost of electricity for MEC members is still well below the national average. As an electric cooperative, MEC’s primary responsibilities are to provide electricity at the lowest possible rates consistent with the need to remain financially sound and to provide reliable service.

Rate Classification

The Residential rates listed below apply to all residential customers including single-family homes, separately metered single-family apartments, manufactured homes, and general farm use when combined with a residence using the same meter.

If a portion of a residence is used regularly to conduct business, the consumption for that portion will be separately metered and billed under the applicable General Service rate. If separate circuits are not provided by the customer for metering, the entire premises shall be classified as residential and billed accordingly.

The Residential rate shall not apply to institutions such as clubs, fraternities, orphanages, adult foster homes, or churches; recognized rooming or boarding houses.
