Dispelling time-of-day rate misconceptions

Last fall, we mailed everyone a Time-of-Day (TOD) Rate magnet showing our on-peak and off-peak hours for the calendar year. We have always been concerned that members may not understand the concept behind this rate. 
Last spring, we conducted our annual customer satisfaction survey and asked members a series of questions regarding their familiarity with the TOD Rate. The results were encouraging. Eighty-six percent said they were aware of it, and the percentage rose to 94 after being prompted by the person conducting the survey. 

Rate adjustments effective Jan. 1

The new residential rate schedule for North Central Electric Cooperative went into effect Jan. 1 and will be reflected on members’ February bills. 
The difference between on-peak and off-peak electric generation charges has increased from 3 to 3.5 cents per kilowatt-hour (kWh). This change in the difference between on-peak and off-peak generation charges is not a rate increase. When the rate difference is adjusted, the on-peak rate increases while the off-peak rate decreases proportionately.   

Mohawk sees the light

North Central Electric Cooperative Energy Services Advisor Andrew Finton helped Sycamore’s Mohawk Local Schools upgrade their lighting to more efficient LED technology. Lighting upgrades to the main building, MCI building, and Field House allowed Mohawk to reduce its lighting wattage by more than 45,000 watts.

Trustee nominating petitions available Jan. 8

Nominating petitions for three district seats on the North Central Electric Cooperative Board of Trustees will be available Monday, Jan. 8, at the cooperative’s office in Attica. 
Cooperative members interested in a seat will need to secure at least 25 signatures from members residing in their district, similar to the process that township trustees and school board members must follow.  
Petitions must be filed with the cooperative by 4:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 12. 

Beat The Peak

Due to the extreme cold, wind, and high demand for power, load control to reduce power use may be necessary through the entire week for members who have load control switches.

This is a result of high demand on the transmission system.

Should load control be necessary, the cooperative requests  members reduce power consumption during peak demand periods (6 to 9 a.m. and 5 to 10 p.m.). 

High winds lead to outages

The storm on Nov. 5 produced high winds leading to power outages across Crawford, Seneca, and Richland counties. The winds brought down trees and limbs which brought down the powerlines. Nearly 500 North Central Electric members were without power, some as long as seven hours.
