Detail of Charges
This area shows all charges on your meter(s) for the month. The basic charge is the monthly charge that covers the cost of service drop, transformers, etc. The KWH revenue lines represent the charges for energy consumed during the billing period. The purchased power adjustment is a variable component calculated from the cooperative's monthly power cost. If you are participating in our off-peak programs, you will have more than one meter. The additional meter(s) will also have details of charges and a rate schedule.

Return Stub
The bottom third of your statement is the portion we ask that you mail back with your payment. Some members may see an area to write in their meter readings. Your account number and billing cycle also appear here. You will note the indicators if you have a loan with us (L), if you are on Budget Billing (B) or if your account is on AutoPay. By including this portion with your payment you can be assured accurate credit to the proper account. There is also an area provided if you need to update your address, correct your phone numbers or need a change in service. If you read your own meters, there will be a space for entering meter readings.
