Notice for members
We have been made aware that some of our current and former members have noticed fraudulent charges on their bank accounts and that the common link seems to be previous electronic checking transactions with Coast Electric. We are working with law enforcement agencies, banks and our data provider to investigate the situation and determine what, if any, remedial measures need to be taken.
Here’s what you should know:
- This does not affect members who pay using debit or credit cards.
- This does not affect members who have paid by mailing a check or bringing a check to our offices.
- If you have paid using an echeck, please monitor your bank account and immediately report fraudulent activity to your bank.
- While we are investigating this issue, we have temporarily disabled echeck payments. If you are scheduled to pay your bill this month via echeck, please call us at 877-769-2372 and we will work with you.
- Coast Electric is committed to safeguarding the personal information of our members.
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.

At the Lowest Possible Price.
Each year, Coast Electric ranks as one of the top utilities in the nation for providing reliable electric service. Reliable service doesn't only mean fewer outages for shorter periods of time, it means having highly-skilled employees you can depend on when the power does go out. It means having a team of people working for you to balance reliability, service and cost. Because we aren't just the people who work here - we are your neighbors, your friends and we are members, too.
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.
