MidSouth Helping Members

Update- September 1, 2020

Over the past few months, MidSouth made decisions that put our members first during the COVID-19 pandemic. We aimed to alleviate some of the pressure caused by financial hardships. To help those experiencing financial difficulty, MidSouth suspended past due fees and disconnects as our community worked to get back on its feet. MidSouth also shared community-based agencies who could help members through financial difficulties. Additionally, your electric cooperative returned $7.3 million back to members in the form of Kilowatt Relief. The Kilowatt Relief program credited money back into the accounts of active members, effectively lowering their electricity bills in the hot summer months.

As the country returns to normal, MidSouth will begin resuming its standard business policies. Effective October 1, 2020, disconnects and past due fees for non-payment will resume. Members effected by this change will be provided with an opportunity to request an extension or set up a deferred payment contract on their outstanding balance. These deferred payments will be in addition to future bills.

MidSouth remains focused on its 80-year-old mission to increase the quality of life and economic health of its service territory. If you have any questions, please contact us at 936-825-5100.
