No TV or telephone so this was our connection to the outside Today the mailman still comes by every day except Sunday.


But most days the pieces he delivers are much less exciting. The most important thing is to be sure not to throw away the bills to be paid with the credit card applications and the satellite TV solicita- tions. Other than Christmas cards there is very little “real people” mail. Today, mobile phones, texting, and emails have replaced the “real” mail that we used to watch for daily. The U.S. Postal System is struggling to reinvent itself to avoid going the way of the “Mont- gomery Ward Catalogue.” We need the postal system but, both we and they will have to accept change. Today’s technology demands it. Out in the country when Canadian Valley Electric Cooperative first brought electricity to our home, we did not get an electric bill in the mail. We read our own meter, calculated the electric usage, fig- ured the monthly bill and mailed all, with payment, to the Coopera- tive. That system worked well, but that was the days before comput- ers, Power Cost Adjustments and complicated rates. Today Canadian Valley Electric Cooperative serves over 24,000 accounts and most of them get a bill mailed to them each month by way of the U.S. Postal Service and send their monthly payment back in the same manner. Most but not all. About 30 percent of our member/customers do not bother to write a check or buy a stamp to pay their monthly Canadian Valley electric bill. Of this 30 percent, about 1/3rd have authorized us to just automatically draft their checking or savings ac- count each month, ten days after their electric bill is mailed to them. Of this 30 percent, about 2/3rd pay their bill over the telephone or online without writing a check or buying a postage stamp. About 3 percent of our 24,000 member/customers have told us not to bother sending them a paper bill each month. We just email them a notice each month reminding them that they can go online and see their electric bill. We like that too, since we don’t have to pay the postage to send the bill or even print the bill. You can try it and change back if you are not satisfied.

Whether you want to go electronic in receiving and/or paying your monthly electric bill or continue to use the U.S. Postal system both ways is strictly your choice. We want you to use the method that is most comfortable for you. Whether you choose to receive and/or pay your electric bill online or not, you can still go online and review the history of your electric account with Canadian Valley Electric. If you have access to the internet, you can check your ac- count without contacting us.


If you have any problems in accessing your CVEC account or have questions you may call and talk to a customer service repre- sentative. My mother and I, let Canadian Valley draft our accounts. She will not touch a computer. I have no choice.
