Holiday Season Safety Tips!

As Christmas rolls near, the time for our Members to start decorating grows near too! NEC wants to make sure you’re as safe as possible. As much as it can be exciting, it is important to be aware of some electrical safety that would be helpful during the holiday season. Below are some tips to stay safe during the holidays!

Capital Credit Breakdown

As a member of Nueces Electric Cooperative, you get the credit—Capital Credits that is. Because when you signed up to receive electric service from NEC, you became a member of the cooperative. While investor-owned utilities return a portion of any profits to their shareholders and investors, electric co-ops allocate any excess revenue to members as capital credits.


Most recently, a member of our co-op received a phone call at approximately 7pm on November 12, 2019. The person on the other side of the line was calling to demand the member to pay for their bill and asked for directions to get to their house. Utility bill scams have become a common occurrence in the United States, with scammers targeting those who have to pay for their utility bills. Here are some tips on how to stay safe from utility scams.
