The Power of Co-op Membership

Welcome

Haven't received your bill?  MSMEC will bill consumers in two billing cycles, rather than four.  February bills for all customers will process and mail the week of March 5, 2018. If you have any questions, please contact our Mora or Pecos offices.
 

Mora San Miguel Electric Cooperative, Inc. (MSMEC) continues its efforts to transition from Analog Meters to AMI meters. This effort is intended to serve as an operational improvement and a cost savings measure for the Cooperative and its Members. The infrastructure required to accommodate the operations of the AMI meters is in place and functioning properly. Contractors and MSMEC staff are presently in the field exchanging meters at homes and businesses.

          As of March 9, 2018, 3,664 AMI meters are online, leaving us with 7,313 to bring online. All the changes required have created many challenges but with the assistance of our Contractors,  Anixter,    and our Billing Software Providers, Daffron, these challenges have been dealt with so as to create an operating system to function as it is intended to.

          We have experienced inconsistencies in consumers read days and billing amounts. These inconsistencies are being dealt with on a case by case basis. We are working to resolve inconsistencies and        or errors that may have occurred because of our oversight of some details related to this transition.

          Consumers who do experience a related inconsistency should feel free to contact our Mora or Pecos office to share their concerns and provide Mora San Miguel Electric Cooperative, Inc. the                 opportunity to service its consumers with reliable and accurate information. We do offer options in dealing with Consumer concerns.
