Becoming a Member
Everyone who receives electric service from Richland Electric Cooperative becomes a member.
The following items are required to be completed and submitted to REC.
Membership and Electric Service Application
W-9 form (one for each applicant)
Deposit Payment - There is a meter deposit (minimum $100 and maximum of $500) to be paid on each account in the member's name. The deposit is refundable after one year if you have established a good payment record with the Cooperative or if you no longer receive service from REC. After we receive a signed membership application form and W-9, a credit check will be ran and you will be notified of the amount of your deposit.
