Fees & Charges
Temporary service fee
If a temporary service is required for a new building site, there is a $20 non-refundable fee above the deposit. Please call our office to discuss your temporary service.
Late payment fees
REMC payments are due upon receipt of the bill with a grace period seventeen (17) days after the billing date. For residential and commercial members, a late fee of 10% of the first $3.00 or less, plus 3% on the net in excess of the first $3.00 will be assessed to all bills received after the due date. If any delinquent balance exists, all payments the Cooperative receives shall first be applied to the delinquency. For all other customer classes, the late payment charge shall be five percent (5%) of the current bill unless the customer’s contract for service establishes different terms.
Insufficient funds check charge
If the REMC has to reimburse the bank for an “insufficient funds” check written by a member, a charge of $35.00 will be added to the member's bill.
Non-payment disconnect charge
A charge of $50.00 will be added to the bill if service is disconnected by the REMC due to non-payment.

To reconnect service between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m., Monday-Friday, a charge of $50.00 must be paid by the member before service will be reconnected.
Reconnection charges-weekdays after 3:00 CST/weekends
If service is to be reconnected after 3:00 p.m. weekdays or anytime on a weekend, an overtime fee of $100.00 in addition to the $50 disconnect and $50 reconnect charges must be paid before service will be reconnected.
