NEW MEMBER INFORMATION
All members interested in receiving electric service from Jump River Electric Cooperative will need to complete a Membership Application and a tax exempt form, if applicable, upon signing up for service. A $200 deposit is required, along with other possible related charges. The $200 deposit can be waived by signing up for the Automatic Bill Payment Plan. There's no charge for this service. Forms can be found below.:
Here is how the Automatic Payment Plan works. Each month you will receive your power bill by mail, as usual. Then on the 28th of the month, your financial institution will automatically deduct your payment from your checking or savings account you provided to JREC. The Automatic Bill Payment Plan saves you time, postage, and your bill is always paid by the due date. You never have to worry about a penalty charge, bill being lost in the mail, and you won't have to sit down and write a check. Please note this option is available not only to new members, but to all members. Just complete the below Automatic Bill Payment Plan Form.
Do you prefer to pay by credit card? If so, we also have an option for you. You can signup for an online account through Bill4U and either pay your bill on the day you want each month or set it up to automatically charge the balance due to your credit card on the 28th of each month. You can also sign up for paperless billing at Bill4U and see your payment and usage history here as well.
Construction / New Electric Service
If you are building a new home, remodeling, or changing your existing service and will require a new electric service or service change, please call us four to six weeks prior to when you need it. Several things must be done before the service can be installed. The route of the line has to be determined and staked, a membership application must be completed, an easement needs to be obtained and recorded with the the Register of Deeds, and an estimate for cost of construction will be provided after meeting with the home owner.
The first step to any construction project is to call Diggers Hotline before you dig - Dial 811.
In addition, payment for the line/service must be made prior to construction. The cost of the electric service depends on the length of the line extension to be built along with other fees. See the following chart for some of these fees:
While we work hard to install your new electric service as soon as possible, even on short notice, it really helps when we are notified in advance. We also provide many other products and services you may want to considers, from electric heat to Viasat high-speed Internet. Be sure to also take advantage of the many rebates available to you through the Energy Sense program.
