Deposit, Fees & Charges

Southeast Colorado Power Association is committed to providing the best possible service at the lowest possible cost. We take pride in our cooperative. Keeping the cost of electricity affordable helps keep local businesses competitive, while preserving our rural heritage and standard of living.


To determine if a deposit is required on a new account, Southeast Colorado Power will run a credit check through a third party credit evaluation service on all new customers. If you are currently receiving service from us, we will look at your present credit history. Deposits are refundable one year from the date of payment if a good credit rating is established.

Returned Check Fees

Southeast Colorado Power shall charge $30.00 for each check or other form of payment that is dishonored or returned to the Cooperative, regardless of the reason. Any customer having a check or other form of payment dishonored two or more times in a 12-month period may be required to pay by cash, money order, or certified check.
