A membership fee of $20 is required to become a member of and receive service from Coahoma Electric Power Association. All applications for membership must be approved by the board of directors. The membership fee is refundable to the member upon termination of service and payment of all final charges.
Each service may require a security deposit in addition to the membership fee. The amount of the deposit required in each case will be determined by the association and kept within the guidelines set forth by the Mississippi Public Service Commission. Deposits are refundable, with interest, upon termination of service and the payment of all final charges.
Billing / payment dates
Electric service is billed monthly on or about the last working day of each month. Your bill will show a net and a gross billing. Net amounts are five percent less than the gross and are accepted with payments made by the 10th of the month. Payments received in our offices after the 10th should reflect the gross amount.
Any account not paid by the 15th will receive a disconnect notice and will be disconnected for non-payment on the date noted on the "Late Notice" (around the 20th of the month). Reconnect charges will apply and must be paid in order to restore electricity to that location.
Members may make payments on their account with cash, check, money order, bank draft, or at the Payment Kiosk in our lobby at the Lyon and Tunica offices. Payments are also accepted at First Security Bank in Marks. Payment at this collection site must be made prior to the 10th of the month.
Bank draft can be set up by contacting the offices of Coahoma Electric and completing the proper paperwork. Drafts are processed on or about the 10th of each month on a consumer's net billing.
Online payments can be made at our website, www.coahomaepa.com. To set up your account for online payments, we will need your email address and your current telephone number. You can call our office for more details.
