Member Meeting Notices
Special Member Meetings
HomeWorks Tri-County Electric Cooperative is a member-owned, member-regulated electric utility, which makes us a little different. By member-regulated, we mean that policy and rates are set by the Board of Directors, who are elected by their neighbors to serve in this capacity.
Decisions like these are made at special open member meetings. When a meeting is set, we'll post the date, time, and location here and at our offices, as well as in Country Lines magazine. Any actions taken or decisions made at the meeting will be published in the same places. You can download a copy of previous official notices below.
Notice to Members of HomeWorks Tri-County Electric Cooperative
Tariff Changes Effective February 15, 2017
The HomeWorks Tri-County Electric Cooperative Board of Directors, at their regular meeting held November 28, 2016, adopted three new tariffs dealing with renewable energy:
1) Schedule CS – Community Solar.
2) Schedule BASA – Buy-All/Sell-All.
3) Schedule DRE – Distributed Renewable Energy (Net Metering)
These rates were developed in coordination with Wolverine Power Cooperative to make the tariffs consistent among Wolverine’s member-cooperatives, and as part of their 10 MW standing offer re: renewable energy. They take effect February 15, 2017.
For specific details on any HomeWorks tariffs or fees, please call us at 1-800-562-8232 or visit our website at homeworks.org.
Note: We published notice of a revised Net Metering tariff in the September 2016 issue of Michigan Country Lines. The above-referenced rates, developed by Wolverine since the June 27 meeting when that tariff was approved, are more favorable to members interested in renewable energy.
