Rates & Charges
Crawford Electric is a not-for-profit cooperative committed to selling power to its members at cost. Rates are set based on the cost of power as contracted with our power suppliers (Associated Electric Cooperative Inc. and Sho-Me Power) and the cost of Crawford Electric's operational and plant expenses. Every effort is made to control these costs to keep rates affordable.
Residential Rates (reflected on April 2016 bills):
Basic Service Availability Charge: $26 per month
This charge covers the costs associated with having an active electric service to your home. It covers services such as power line maintenance, right-of-way work, billing, accounting and customer service.
Residential Energy Charge: 8.13 cents per kwh
The energy charge represents the costs associated with generating and delivering electricity to your meter. A kilowatt-hour (kWh) is a measurement of electricity. One kWh runs a 100-watt light bulb for 10 hours.
Monthly electric bills are issued on the last business day of the month, payable without penalty through the 15th of the month. Any amount paid after the 15th is assessed a 5% penalty.
