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.
