TakeCHARGE is a Prepay Power Program from Tombigbee Electric Cooperative, that will put the consumer in charge of their power usage. takeCHARGE gives you the ability to pay for your electricity before using it and monitor your usage daily.
Security deposits for the pre-pay program will be waived while the member is a satisfactory participant in the program. If a member, either by choice or by the Cooperative's choice, no longer participates in the pre-pay program, the standard policy governing security deposits will be followed.
If an existing member elects to participate in the pre-pay program, any security deposit that member has on record will be applied to the current balance and any remainder will be applied to the member's pre-paid account.
TEC will require an accurate cell phone number or e-mail address in order for the Cooperative to provide up-dates to the member regarding account balances and other energy use information. Member's may also check their account balance using TEC's web-site, by calling into the office or by using a free mobile app.
Payments for the pre-pay program may be made through all payment options currently offered by the Cooperative.
Any member of TEC can choose to pre-pay their electricity through the Cooperative's takeCHARGE program by paying an initial non-refundable set up fee of $30 per meter and having a $0 (zero) account balance or set up a debt-payment agreement on their account(s) before participating.
