Electric Price Lower in April

(March 31, 2016)  —  The per kilowatt price for electricity will be lower in April 2016, for Meriwether Lewis Electric Cooperative members. The decrease comes as the Tennessee Valley Authority’s Fuel Cost Adjustment goes down, and the energy charge transitions from the winter seasonal price. 

Together, these decreases mean that residential MLEC members using 1200 kilowatt-hours of electricity will pay $2.47 less than they did in March. A complete rate schedule is available online.

Temporary Change to Reporting an Outage

(March 29, 2016) — Meriwether Lewis Electric Cooperative shares a temporary change in how members report a power outage after hours. Members from all counties are asked to call their local office and “Press 9” to be automatically transferred to the after-hours call center.

“The company that helps us with after-hour outage reporting experienced a fire at their facility,” says MLEC President and CEO Keith Carnahan. “Thankfully, we have an alternative in place that will allow us to continue serving our members.”
