Clarke Electric is there for you Move Over Slow Down

Welcome to Clarke Electric Cooperative

Safety Driven  Energy Smart  Community Invested. Clarke Electric Cooperative is your local electric cooperative located in Osceola, Iowa. We serve more than 5,000 consumers in parts of eight counties in south central Iowa. We work together to deliver safe, efficient, reliable and affordable electricity to consumers like you. We are local, safety driven, energy smart, community invested and WE are YOU. 


June 25, 2020 - 4 p.m.

To our members,

Clarke Electric Cooperative has returned to work; however, the office remains closed to the public at this time. We ask that you continue to interact with the cooperative by using the payment drop box and using our on-line services such as SmartHub and Veri-phone.

As of June 1, we are resuming our disconnection procedures for non-payment. Conditions and requirements for resuming disconnects were set by the Iowa Utilities Board and established a phased-in approach to disconnections and give customers time to contact a community action agency or other organization for available assistance if needed. In addition, the phase-in will allow member-consumers who have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and who may not be familiar with the disconnection process time to enter into a  payment agreement with Clarke Electric.  If you find yourself facing difficulties, we encourage you to contact CEC to see what payment options are available to you. We understand the importance of electrical service, especially during these uncertain times.  We will keep you informed on procedural and or mandated changes that take place during this difficult time.

2020 Annual Meeting Changes Format

The Board of Directors have made the difficult decision to change the format for the 2020 Annual Meeting. Due to ongoing COVID-19 issues, and to ensure the health and safety of our members, employees, and the communities we serve, we will hold a virtual annual meeting for director elections on September 14, 2020. The meeting and abbreviated reports will be taped and posted to our cooperative website for members to view following the annual meeting.

Members will be able to vote by mail or drop off their ballots at the cooperative headquarters as in the past years. Reports and director candidate information will be published in the August Clarke REC Headlines Newsletter as well as the official notice sent to all CEC members in August.  

We apologize that our friends and members will not get the opportunity to gather and share time together this year. We sincerely thank you for your understanding and hope we will be able to meet in person for the 2021 annual meeting. Please understand, we are committed to keep everyone safe.
