So What’s an Electric Cooperative and how does it help me?
Electric cooperatives like Coast Electric are operated and owned by the people we serve. That means you're more than just a customer, you are a member of your local electric co-op. Co-ops are not-for-profit businesses so decisions are made with our members, not profit, in mind. We were built and are lead by members just like you and we want you to know what being a member of a co-op is all about.

Time of Use Rates
As a consumer, you’re accustomed to making money-saving choices and paying lower prices for goods and services used during off-peak times. A number of industries — such as telecommunications and commercial airlines — offer attractive off-peak rates to even out customer demand and prevent system overload.
Coast Electric’s Time of Use (TOU) electric rate is based on the same idea. By reducing your electric use during peak times, you have the opportunity to decrease your annual energy costs — without reducing the overall amount of electricity you use.
