What happens behind the scenes during a power outage?

2020 was unique, to say the least. Contributing to the chaos was a record-breaking hurricane season, intense heat waves, lightning storms that sparked wildfires, and various other inclement weather concerns.

What do all these weather phenomena have in common? Unfortunately, they all had the potential to result in power outages.

From the Manager - February 2021

As the winter continues, we want our members to keep safety in mind. Our crews wrestle high voltage lines and the weather whenever they roll out to restore power in an ice storm. It is dangerous work. We can all do our part to mitigate the risks by moving over and slowing down when we see a utility crew working, especially in poor conditions.

From the Manager - January 2021

Happy New Year!

Your Clay Electric Co-operative family wishes you and yours the best this year. 2020 had more than its fair share of trials and hardships, but with grit and perseverance, we have come to this year with fresh eyes and renewed spirit.

Undeliverable capital credits for the years 1969-1975

As a member of a cooperative, you are more than a customer. You are a member-owner. Clay Electric Co-operative is a non-profit cooperative. When we collect more funds from the membership than we need to fund the cooperative, those additional margins are refunded to the membership in the form of capital credits.
