New Service Applications
To receive service from Tri-County Electric Cooperative, the consumer must apply for membership. New members may be required to pay a deposit, membership fee and any other applicable fees at the time of application. To obtain service for a new structure, proper county permits and inspection are required before power is connected. The procedure for obtaining temporary service, such as power for building a house, is the same as applying for new service. A valid county permit is also required.
Please be aware of the following items regarding residential applications:
- In order to complete your application online, you must provide all information requested on the application. You will not be able to submit the application if any of the required fields are left blank.
