The Energy Cooperative’s (TEC) propane serves approximately 4,000 members in the central Ohio and Muskingum Valley areas. With our metered service, you can receive monthly billing for only the amount of propane you use. No surprises, hidden fees, delivery fees, or fuel surcharges.
Vote for Your Board of Directors
The health and well-being of our members is of the highest priority to the Board of Directors. In light of COVID-19 and health concerns with large gatherings, the Board has decided not to hold the customary annual meeting this year, but rather hold a business meeting which will be released on video for members.
As a member of the Cooperative you may vote for ONE candidate in each of the three districts up for election.
Additionally, if you wish to submit a question for the CEO to address in the business meeting, please submit it with your ballot.
You can vote by the paper ballot mailed to your service address, or online through SmartHub.
Considering rooftop solar?
As prices decline and technology improves, installing a residential solar system—also called a photo-voltaic or PV system—makes sense for some consumers. However, even with these recent improvements in PV, it’s important to find out the facts before committing to a purchase.
Don’t be surprised.
Ask us today and avoid surprises down the road. Here is a resource for our electric members to answer frequently asked questions about solar panels, share the top five solar myths, 10 steps to take before installing solar, and 10 questions to ask your solar contractor.
Disconnects to resume July 20, 2020
The Energy Cooperative will resume disconnections for accounts with a past due balance beginning July 20, 2020. We temporarily suspended disconnections due to non-payment on March 13, 2020 to help our members during the COVID-19 pandemic. As we have previously communicated, this was an effort to help members delay their payment not a forgiveness of the bill. We are a cooperative that is owned by members, like you, and we work hard to keep costs down while providing safe, reliable and affordable energy.

Security standards (specifically, the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards) prohibit our member service representatives from taking your credit card information over the phone. These standards are designed to ensure companies who accept, process, store or transmit credit card information maintain a secure environment. Because we record our phone calls for quality assurance, we are no longer able to accept credit card payments in this way. Be assured, however, there are many other ways to pay your bill including by mail; automated telephone system; online; in person; night drop-boxes located at Newark and Utica locations; and at your local bank.
Both the Facilities Fee and Distribution Charge include the fixed cost of running the Cooperative, such as meter reading, billing, record keeping, replacing poles, power lines, and other equipment. This is also the cost to distribute electric to Cooperative members. This facilities fee will be applied each month, even though you may not consume natural gas or electric.
The Energy Cooperative offers budget billing which allows your monthly utility costs to remain constant throughout the entire year. Please note the following:
- The account must be paid in full to qualify.
- The budget accounts are reviewed during the month of March and September. During this review, your budget amount may be increased or decreased depending on your usage.
