FROM ITS VERY BEGINNING...
Talquin Electric Cooperative exists for a simple purpose: Talquin Electric exists to power communities and empower Members to improve the quality of their lives and to deliver services to its Members as reliably, fairly and affordable as possible. Talquin’s new meters will help keep costs to Members as low as possible, improve reliability and reduce operational costs over the long run. "TEC- Meters" are the most cost-effective and efficient metering solution for the Cooperative. Half the cost of the new system has been paid for with a federal grant – your tax dollars, coming back to you. The remaining cost of the new system will be offset in several ways:
CAN I STILL READ MY OWN METER?
YES. Meters will continue to display usage and can be monitored by Members who want to keep up with their usage by checking the display.
Members have asked “What day will my meter be read?” The read dates will be as follows and these dates will not vary regardless of weekends or holidays:
Cycle 2 – the 2nd
Cycle 3 – the 9th
Cycle 4 – the 16th
Cycle 1 – the 24th
