Apply for Service

New Service

In order to establish a new service with Tri-County Electric Cooperative, an individual can simply call the Mount Vernon office (618-244-5151). Or, if you prefer, the application process can be handled in person at either the Mount Vernon office (3906 Broadway Street, Mt. Vernon) or the Salem office (1631 E. Main, Salem). Once the proper paperwork is completed, an engineer will schedule an appointment at the site to 'stake' the job and review any work that needs to be done before the service can be built.

Some information needed when applying for new service is:

  • Location for the new service (legal description)
  • Mailing address for the new service location
  • Prospective member's social security number
  • Deposit (amount depends on prospective member's credit score)
