December 2020
FreeState Electric Cooperative does not participate in the Cold Weather Rule established by the Kansas Corporation Commission (KCC), a rule which restricts electric disconnects from Nov. 1 through March 31, when temperature forecasts are 35 degrees or below. 
FreeState Electric Cooperative is not mandated by this policy and has been responsible for establishing its own appropriate seasonal rules since 1996. 
All accounts are subject to disconnection for nonpayment and are not governed by temperature. 
If you have any questions about FreeState’s seasonal rules or billing options, please call our office at 800-794-1989. Assistance agencies are listed on the FEC website for your convenience.
FreeState invests in our youth with opportunities designed to reflect the realities of our society and its preference for dynamic, personal interactions. In today’s professional world, employers and thought leaders want to see presenters who make a connection with the audience, while communicating their message. The Electric Cooperative Youth Tour and Cooperative Youth Leadership Camp experiences are all-expenses-paid and will truly be experiences of a lifetime for area youth. One student will be sponsored for each opportunity. Any high school junior living in the FreeState territory with a parent or guardian who is a member of the cooperative is eligible. Deadline for the 2021 program is Friday, Feb. 12, 2021.
