Summer has arrived, temperatures are rising, air conditioners are kicking on and electric bills are higher due to increased energy use. Tri-County Electric Cooperative (TCEC) reminds members the cooperative has tools to help members monitor their energy use and find energy saving tips.

“We have not changed our rates,” said Chris Purdy, TCEC vice president of Member Solutions. “The biggest factor affecting a member’s bill is how much electricity they use and we’re here to help them manage that if they like.”

Bill payment scam targets local utility members

Members are receiving scam phone calls claiming their electricity will be turned off within hours unless they make an immediate payment. Individuals impersonating TCEC and other utilities try to gain access to the member’s bank account or ask for payment through a third-party vendor or a prepaid card.

Payment scams in general are an issue nationwide so it’s important all members are aware of the possibility they may be contacted.
