Charges & Fees
Returned Checks A $25 returned-check charge will be assessed for any checks that are not honored. In addition, your bill will be considered unpaid, and late payment charges will apply.
Bill Due Date To avoid a penalty, your payment must reach our office by the due date printed on the bill.
Late-Payment Charge A 1.5% penalty will apply if payment is received after the due date printed on the bill.
Monthly Service Charge This recurring monthly fee is charged to every member-owner, regardless of the amount of energy used. It helps offset the cost of maintaining electric service at a location and covers maintenance of poles, wires, transformers, meters, right-of-way, administration, preparation and mailing of bills and other expenses associated with providing electric service.
Power Costs Adjustment (PCA) This possible fluctuating monthly adjustment reflects the amount of Farmers Electric pays for power above or below the base cost established at the time of our last rate change.
Note If a line crew is dispatched to service a member's outage and the outage is found to be no fault of the cooperative or its equipment, a service call fee is charged to the member-owner.
