CCEC members will see a roughly 2 percent increase in bills beginning in January, a result of increased costs of wholesale power and continued compliance costs associated with coal ash regulations.
To recover those costs, CCEC is adding a wholesale power cost adjustment (WPCA) of $2.50 per 1,000 kWh of electricity. The WPCA reflects fluctuations in the wholesale cost of power the cooperative purchases for its consumers and is typically due to changes in the cost of fuels used for generating electricity
When Line Crew Leader Darvene Montford started working for Carteret-Craven Electric Co-op (CCEC), there were no bucket trucks.

When winter temperatures drop, it can be challenging to stay safe and warm. We don’t usually have winter storms that knock out power in our area, but they can – and have – happened. We care about your safety, and we want you to be prepared.
Be sure to get a copy of our new 2019 wall calendar featuring photos by several CCEC members. The calendars are available while they last at our offices in Newport and Havelock, just in time for holiday gift giving and the new year.
