Duck River stops service disconnections during pandemic

Duck River Electric Membership Corporation stopped disconnections of electric service for non-payment on March 19 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

“These actions were taken in recognition of the financial hardships some members may face due to the coronavirus outbreak. We understand electricity is essential for the health and safety of you and your family during these difficult times.” said Duck River Electric Membership Corporation President & CEO Scott Spence.

All members will still receive regular monthly electric bills, and payment is appreciated by the due date as Duck River Electric must continue to pay the wholesale power bill for the power consumed. Payment by the regular due date will help keep future rates as low as possible.

“We cannot solve many of today’s national or international problems, but we want to do what we can to help you,” Spence said. If you have questions, please call our office for more information.
