Membership Fee: A membership fee of $5.00 is required to receive electric service from Clarke Electric Cooperative. There is a $5.00 fee for a record change.
Deposit: The required deposit is based upon the highest bill in the previous 12-month history at the location for which service is requested. The deposit fee may be waived by furnishing Clarke Electric with a written credit reference from your previous power supplier showing 12 consecutive on-time payments. Once Clarke Electric receives 12 consecutive on-time payments, your deposit will be applied as a credit to your account.
Posting Fee: If you fail to respond to a late notice/friendly reminder, a Clarke Electric employee may post a Notice of Disconnect by your electric meter on your property. This notice states that disconnection of service will take place within 48 hours. A non-refundable and non-transferable $125 posting fee will be added to the delinquent amount.
Disconnect Fee: A $125 disconnection fee will be charged to your account if your service is disconnected for non-payment. To avoid this action, contact must be made with Clarke Electric's billing department prior to the disconnect date printed on the late notice/friendly reminder.
Reconnect Fee: A $125 reconnection fee will be charged when your service has been disconnected for non-payment. Reconnection is made during regular office hours, which are 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. You will be charged this $125 reconnection fee for each meter that is reconnected.
After-Hours Reconnect Fee: If your service was disconnected for non-payment and reconnection is made after regular office hours, a $200 reconnection fee will be charged.
Bill Due Date: To avoid a penalty your payment must reach our office by the "due date" printed on the bill.
