Do you know that the rates are over twice as high as some others in Arkansas?
No wonder they are afraid of putting the rate charged per kilowatt hour.
I f you ever wondered why big industries won't come to Pocahontas just ask this farce of an electric Coop.
dont expect an answer

The High electric rates were one of the MAJOR reasons for the loss of manufacturing jobs. When Waterloo left because of high rates and told the coop point blank that the rates were too high and that they would close,the coop did a stupid thing .
They need to fire the management and someone needs to run against the rubber stamp board that are mostly interested in $$ for sitting there and doing nothing

rlington, VA, June 25, 2013 — Jo Ann Emerson, CEO of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA), made the following statement today in response to the President’s proposal that will raise electric utility bills for millions of Americans:

“Electric cooperatives oppose President Obama’s proposal to use the Clean Air Act to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from power plants. America’s rural communities depend on coal-fired generation for affordable electric power and would be disproportionately penalized by this scheme. Folks in rural communities and those with low or fixed incomes already spend more of their household budget on energy; this proposal would increase their burden. The President’s proposal would be, in effect, a regressive new climate tax on America’s most economically vulnerable citizens.

NRECA and America’s electric cooperatives will fight this proposal at the agency level and in the courts if necessary. If the President doesn’t recognize the need to keep electric bills affordable, we promise to bring it to his attention.”

The National Rural Electric Cooperative Association is the national service organization that represents the nation’s more than 900 private, not-for-profit, consumer-owned electric cooperatives, which provide service to 42 million people in 47 states.

Remember two things. Not all Clay County employees are bad and the FOIA is your friend. Request the directors 1099's and tell us what you think about that.

They outsourced the billing and calls and like to spent a couple weeks a year in Hawaii ever year. Also they have the "big" picnic in the hottest part of summer to elect the leader and the only people that show are the free loaders wanting a stale hotdog and a chance to win a tv so the elections are a joke.And YES the directors are overpaid and the workers are underpaid. CC electric has some fine workers, good people, and yet the directors are as sorry as they come, self serving, out for themselves. Too many Chief's and not enough Indians. Its our COOP yet people are too lazy to make a stand, people sell out cheap a stale hotdog and a nasty drink and they just nod like sheep to whatever the directors want. A good audit would make folks $hit their pants. Wonder how many electric poles FEMA paid to be replaced that only had their date tag changed?????

You need to contact Mr.Charles Regan of Pocahontas, he is one of the main people that is on the Clay County Board. He would help you or explain why. Has a used cars dealership beside Sears East Side Pocahontas. Good-Luck.

The answer is real simple, when they have the elections during the "picnic" vote the scumbags out, get new people in. Same old people equal same old sh*t!

They nominate the same asses each time so they control the election , the only way to change things is to go in mass and nominate an outsider to change things.

they clutter up the bill to throw you off the true cost per kilowatt hr.
they charge appr 25% more than entergy.
those little checks they sent back were because the govt said they
were charging too much years ago. still are,
I did the math

For the basic energy cost that does not include all those added taxes
Clay electric ,01768 per kilowatt hour
Entergy .01302 per kilowatt hour
so just on the basic charge for electricity entergy is 31% cheaper!
Also the customer charge for entergy is$15.04 while Clay electric is 17.50
Since I have differnt properties that are just a few miles apart , I have to wonder why this member owned coop that never has paid me a dividend is so much higher.
If I was building a business that was going to be using a lot of electrical power I would not be in CLAY ELECTRICs service area.

I HAVE BEEN USING DE CLERK AND HAVE A BIG 1000 GALLON tank, I fill it in the Summer and ask the companies to do a price match.
If you ask De Clerk will match the price.
If you don't like the locals you can always try American and enjoy being totally ripped off.
