Rates & Regulations

Listed on this page are HomeWorks Tri-County Electric Cooperative's rates, regulations and tariffs. Documents are available to download in PDF format.

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.

The HomeWorks Tri-County Electric Cooperative Board of Directors, at a Special Open Meeting held June 27, 2016, took action on several matters, including revising the cooperative’s rates and availability charges to take effect October 7, 2016, to meet current and future financial needs, based on an independent Cost of Service study. The updated tariff sheets are linked below as PDF files. If you need a different form of access to the tariff sheets, please contact our office at 1-800-562-8232, during regular business hours.

On November 28, 2016, the Board of Directors approved three new renewable energy rates, superseding one change made at the June 27 meeting. Schedules CS - Community Solar Program Subscription, BASA - Renewable Energy Standing Offer, and DRE - Distributed Renewable Energy Program, were developed with the help of Wolverine Power Cooperative and take effect on February 7, 2017.
