Programs and Rebates

To offset the cost of providing electric service to rural areas in Monroe, Randolph and St. Clair counties, MCEC offers cost-saving alternatives to its members. Monroe County Electric Cooperative has one of the state’s most comprehensive energy marketing programs.

Capital Credits

As a nonprofit corporation, MCEC sells no stock, declares no dividends, and all excess revenue over expenses (net margins) are returned to the members of the cooperative. This is called Capital Credits. Each year, this net margin – or Capital Credit – is credited to the capital account of each member in proportion to the amount of electric power purchased at such times as the financial condition of MCEC permits. 

Water Heaters

The cooperative sells Marathon water heaters, which feature a lifetime warranty on the tank and a 6 year warranty on parts and labor. Two sizes are available:

  • 50 gallon – call office for pricing (939-7171)
  • 85 gallon – call office for pricing (939-7171)

Stand-By Generator

Monroe County Electric promotes the Briggs & Stratton Home Generator System line of standby and emergency generators. Briggs & Stratton is one of the leading and most well known names in small engines. Residential generators are available from 8 kW to 20 kW and higher, and can be operated on natural gas or propane.

These units are available with transfer switches that automatically start the unit and transfer to standby power in the event of a power outage. When utility service is restored, the transfer switch switches back to utility power and shuts down the generator.

The Briggs & Stratton product line was chosen for its long history in the small engine business and its commitment to a quality line of products at reasonable prices. By choosing Briggs & Stratton, we have a product that has proven reliability and a manufacturer that will be around for a long time to come.

Not sure what size you need? To help with generator sizing and installation costs, contact Matt Cowell at MC Electric. Their phone number is 282-7788. As long as you are a MCEC member, and this installation will be for a MCEC service, we will work with Matt in helping you fill your generator needs.
