Seasonal Service

Members that use seasonal electric service (i.e. irrigation pumps, water features, remote cabins, stock tank heaters, etc.) often discontinue electric service during parts of the year to avoid paying any monthly minimum charge. Any member that requests to disconnect their seasonal service and later requests that same service reconnected in their name will be billed for all applicable charges that would have been charged had the service not been disconnected. In addition, the applicable reconnect fee will also be charged.
