Becoming a Member
Pennyrile Electric is a cooperative, providing electric service to its members. Anyone desiring service is required to become a member of the cooperative. Before service can be given, the following charges must be paid.
Membership Fee - $15.00
This fee may be applied to your final bill when service is no longer desired. If you relocate within the Pennyrile service area, this fee is transferable. (One membership will cover multiple accounts.)
Connection Fee - $35.00
This fee is not transferable or refundable.
- Deposit - $225.00
- Prepay Reserve Fee - $50.00
- Non-Dwelling Deposit - $50.00
A new or previous member authorizing a credit check and obtaining a good credit rating will not be required to pay a deposit. Present members with a good payment record will not be required to pay a deposit for a second meter.
A residential member-owner shall receive a refund of their deposit after 24 months of service with no late payments, returned bank item(s) or evidence of meter tampering. Refund of deposits will be in the form of a credit on the member-owner’s account.
If an account has already been disconnected for non-payment, an additional deposit equal to twice the average bill and a reconnection fee ($35) is required. An additional $100.00 will apply to connections between 6:00pm and 7:30am M-F and anytime on weekends.
