News/Events

A new rate structure takes effect Sept. 1, 2019.

 

The base charge, or fixed cost for service, will increase. This increase will be offset by a decrease in the variable price per kilowatt-hour (kWh). The increased base charge will help the cooperative to more fairly distribute fixed expenses among the membership. For residential members consuming more than 200 kWh per month, there will be no change to the bill amount.

Finding the Right Balance

by Matthew Boshaw, CEO & General Manager of Central Electric Cooperative

Come see the Touchstone Energy Hot Air Balloon at Balloon Fest 2019 to be held at Wolf’s Camping Resort, Knox PA, June 21 and 22.  

Each year, two of Central Electric Cooperative’s (CEC’s) eight board members are up for reelection. In some years, one or both elections are uncontested. In the past, we sent you an election ballot each year, regardless of how many candidates were running for each director seat. When elections have been unopposed, we have received frequent questions from the membership regarding the need or requirement to print and mail ballots.

With spring comes rain and we have certainly not been lacking rainfall recently. As we turn off the heat in our homes, we may find excess moisture is an issue.
