Starting a new service, a name change on an existing service or a meter set, may require you to complete a membership application. Additional paperwork may be required, as well as a deposit. If you are taking over an existing account, it will be helpful to have the previous account number, previous owner or tenant’s name. For additional information about applying for electric service with BCEC stop by our office Monday through Friday 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. or call 417-682-5636 / 800-286-5636.
