From the Manager

It’s a new year and a great time to look toward the future. There’s a lot planned for 2020 at Clay Electric Co-operative. We continue to upgrade and maintain our lines to increase the reliability of our system. This means more stability for each of you. This year will also see us begin to upgrade our metering. Technology has greatly advanced in the electric industry and Clay Electric will be adopting new metering systems and equipment to better be able to track our members usage and find potential problems before the lights even go out.

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.
