Residential Prepay Program

A member who pays a $15.00 membership fee and the connection fee for membership, may choose to participate in the Residential Prepay Program.  The membership of a prepay participant is identical to a regular membership of the Cooperative and carries with it the same rights, responsibilities, and liabilities as the membership for any member not in the Prepay Program.



  • A $50.00 prepay reserve fee is required by all participants.
  • The prepay reserve fee will be held by Pennyrile Electric and used toward the final account balance.  Any remaining dollars will be credited to the member.
  • A reconnect fee of $35.00 is required if the account is disconnected for insufficient funds.



  • Prepay participants may make payments in any amount equal to $20.00 or above.
