Stay safe and warm this winter

As the colder months hit, many of us are not prepared for Old Man Winter’s potential wrath.

Although our number one goal at Clay Electric Co-operative is to provide safe and reliable service — to do all we can to keep the power on — heavy snow and accumulating ice can easily bring tree limbs down onto power lines, cutting off power to homes and businesses.

Make sure your water heater is safe

One home appliance that seldom gets much attention is the water heater. However, neglecting the appliance that we depend on to turn cold water into hot can cause serious havoc.

You may only notice issues with this appliance at the prospect of a cold shower, but a water heater that’s improperly installed or maintained could cause much more serious consequences than that.

Clay Electric Co-operative is proud to announce the new Co-op Connections app for your Apple or Android device. You may remember the Co-op Connections discount card. While the discount card will still be available and accepted by our partners, the new digital app has improved usability. With the app you can find local deals, book hotel rooms through our partnership with iBennie, earn cash back, and more.

From the Manager - November 2019

I’d like to talk to you a moment about the RURAL act and how this legislation needs your support. Clay Electric Co-operative is a not-for-profit cooperative. The revenue we collect from our members is used to maintain lines and provide power to our member-owners. Money collected past the amount needed to keep the cooperative running is returned to our members in the form of capital credits each year. As a not-for-profit, Clay Electric Co-operative and cooperatives across the country are provided tax-exempt status. This status lowers costs and keeps our member’s rates lower in return.
