Green Power

Green Power is electricity generated from environmentally friendly and renewable resources such as wind, solar and water among others.

The Electric Cooperatives of Arkansas have always taken our role as environmental stewards seriously. To that end, over the last two decades we have invested approximately $330 million - more than one third of our capital investment in generation capacity - to develop renewable energy sources in the form of hydropower plants on the Arkansas River.

Energy Audits

Home Energy Calculator imageIt's hard to believe how all those small air leaks and inadequate insulation levels in your home can add up to big electric bills during the summer and winter months.

That's why Mississippi County Electric offers its members a free home energy audit to help you discover those small leaks that increase your summer cooling and winter heating bills beyond what they should be.

What is Demand

"Demand" is the total amount of electricity being used by a consumer at any one time. Demand varies from hour to hour, day to day and season to season. This usage, which is expressed in kilowatts (not kilowatt hours) is called the "demand" on the system. Mississippi County Electric monitors demand over a 15 minute period on rate 3, large commercial and 60 minute period on rate 11, industrial.

General Electrical Safety Tips

General Power Line Safety

  • Keep your distance! Remember the 10-foot rule: When carrying and using ladders and other long tools, keep them at least 10 feet away from all overhead lines - including any lines from the power pole to your home.
  • Look up before raising a ladder or pole to verify that it will not be close to power lines when raised. Use a flashlight or lantern at night to help you see overhead power lines or other hazards.
  • Don’t let children climb trees that are near overhead power lines.
