Changes to Retail Tariff and Rates
At the October and November board meetings, the board of directors approved changes to Medina EC's retail tariff and rates. We encourage you to read a summary of those changes here. Members will see notice of this change in the February Texas Co-op Power. These changes go into effect on March 1, 2014.
At the January board meeting, the board of directors approved changes to Section 5 - Customer Relations Line Extension and Construction Charges in the tariff. These changes go into effect April 1, 2014. These changes establish procedures for potential partial reimbursement of contribution in aid of construction for certain qualifying facilities.
If you have additional questions on any of these changes or how they will affect you, please visit one of our offices or call us at 1-866-MEC-ELEC (632-3532). You can always view Medina EC's current tariff here and see current electric rates here.
