Employees donate $58,000 to support local mental health organization

Cornerstone Donation

Why is my bill high?

Bills are based on the amount of electricity you use. When you use more energy, your bill goes up. When it’s cold in the winter and your heating system runs, or when it’s hot in the summer and your air conditioning runs, your bill will be higher. 

Control Your Heating Costs

Prepare to vote

Each year, SMECO conducts an annual members’ meeting for the purpose of electing directors and voting on bylaw changes. As a customer, you are a member and have the right to vote. All ballots are mailed, so it’s important to make sure we have up-to-date contact information for you so that you receive your election materials.
