Prepay for your Electric Service
Avoid high deposits with InControl pre-pay service. With WEC’s In Control pre-pay option, you have an opportunity to pay in advance for your electricity, avoiding high deposits.

A new member will pay a membership fee of $5, a connection/processing fee of $10 and a deposit as determined by a credit check as listed below:

- The residence must be in a condition which indicates continued use of electric facilities and must be reasonably accessible by an all-weather road (for right-of-way clearance).
- The application for electric service must be signed by the individual requesting such service. For those individuals making application through electronic means, the submission of the application, by law, will fulfill the signature obligation.
- An application cannot be in the name of a deceased member.
- Joint memberships with the Cooperative will be in compliance with the Cooperative’s By-Laws.
A new membership application requires the Social Security Number, driver’s license number, phone number and correct mailing address from the applicant applying for membership. If applicant is currently a member in good standing with the Cooperative, additional identification may not be required.
- Membership with the Cooperative is not transferable. If a person with a residential account membership with the Cooperative who is already a member requests an additional electric service, an additional membership fee is not necessary.
- If service requires construction of lines, billing and fees for line extensions may require additional aid-to-construction charge as determined by staking engineer.

The member is considered in good standing (not on the collection list with no returned checks) for at least 12 months.
The member furnishes a letter of good standing from previous supplier.

- If a member is deceased, the surviving spouse may have the account changed into his/her name upon payment of a $5 membership fee without an additional deposit, provided the account has a satisfactory past twelve (12) month payment history and upon proof of member’s death. In this case, the existing deposit for the account will be transferred to the new account in the surviving spouse’s name.
