Policy for Idle Services
Rules and regulations require that Southwest Iowa REC maintain the entire electric distribution system installed within our service territory, not dependent on whether or not that portion of the system is energized. In 2008, the board of directors and management of the Cooperative implemented an Idle Service fee and policy. The letter to all distribution members, as well as the Idle Service Election Form can be viewed by following these links. If you have any questions or concerns relating to this policy, please give our office a call.
Is there a move in your future?
When moving, you are responsible for the electric usage until the Cooperative is contacted and arrangements have been made.
Please provide us with a forwarding address so we can send you the final bill. We ask that you keep a current address on file with us to assure that we may retire your patronage and mail capital credits to you in future years.
