Effective with energy bills due in February 2021, the daily fixed charge will increase 10 cents for all rate classifications. The cooperative’s charge per unit of energy – kWh – will remain the same for all rate classifications. The incremental change to the daily fixed charge will help SEMO Electric pay its long-term debt (much like a home loan) incurred from the 2009 ice storm, schedule regular system upgrades and conduct tree trimming for more than 2,600 miles of lines. Our focus is to keep the lights on in a prudent manner.
