About our Cooperative
Consolidated Electric is a not-for-profit electric utility owned by the consumer-members who use the electricity and other services it provides. Headquartered in Mexico, Missouri, the cooperative serves parts of Audrain, Callaway, Monroe, Montgomery, Pike and Ralls Counties. CEC currently serves more than 7,840 meters for homes, farms, businesses and industry members and maintains more than 2,240 miles of energized power lines.
On September 20, The Enviornmental Protection Agency (EPA) issued new proposed rules limiting the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions of new coal-and natural gas-based power plants. The proposed rule sets stringent limits on CO2 emissions from coal plants in particular, essentially requiring the use "carbon capture and sequestration" (CCS) technology or eliminating coal as a potential fuel source for future plants.
Since CCS is not commercially viable, the Administration has abandoned its "all-of-the-above" energy strategy and embraced an "all-but-one" approach that effectively prevents construction of new coal-based generation.
Electric cooperatives strongly oppose this shift and believe the proposed rule should be withdrawn. Co-ops support using a diverse fuel mix including renewables, natural gas, nuclear and coal to generate electricity, and support using demand response and energy efficiency to use that energy wisely and keep costs affordable.
Consolidated Electric is asking its members to send a message to the Environmental Protection Agency NOW. America needs an All-of-the-Above strategy. Go to www.Action.coop to send your message.
CEC offers the latest technology to help you manage your electric account 24/7 by computer or smartphone with a FREE online application called SmartHub.
With SmartHub you can
- make a payment
- set up automatic recurring payments
- elect to have paperless billing
- check your electric usage
- receive email or text alerts
- communicate with the Cooperative
SmartHub is easy to navigate. It's simple and quick to make a payment or view your daily meter data. You can compare bills and find out what day of the week you typically use the most electricity.
You can also choose to receive an email or text alert when a payment is due.
Any member that had previously used the online presentment and payment application will need to re-register for the SmartHub site. To register, members will be required to use their new account number which is located in the top right section of the monthly bill. Businesses will need to enter their business name exactly as it is printed on their monthly bill during the registration process.
We have an App for that!
Indeed, along with the new user-friendly, enhanced SmartHub online application...there are FREE Apple and Android apps for members on-the-go.
Members with smartphones or table devices can download the SmartHub app from iTunes or the Android Marketplace. The app allows you to make a payment or view your usage while on the go.
Keep Your Information Current
The Cooperative reminds members of the importance in keeping updated phone numbers and addresses current. Please take a moment to think through if you need to update your phone numbers (home, cell, work) or any other information to allow the cooperative to get in touch with you in case of outages or payment information discrepancies that could help avoid disconnection of services.
