From the day Sand Mountain Electric Cooperative was started 80 years ago through today and in the future, taking care of our members and employees remains a top priority. Over the past few weeks, all our lives have been impacted by the rapid spread of the coronavirus or COVID-19.

As the situation continues to evolve, we are following the recommendations of public health officials and government agencies to ensure the safety of employees and members.

Beginning Monday, March 23, 2020 the SMEC lobby will be closed until further notice. Employees will keep the inside office and outside operations running with an alternate work schedule that minimizes potential exposure risks to employees and the public.

Routine business hours are Monday-Friday from 7:30 a.m. until 4 pm, except holidays. The drive-thru window will remain open to receive electric bill payments weekdays during these hours. Pay after hours in the convenient night deposit, which is located beside the drive-thru window or any payment methods listed in the prior SMEC Facebook post. 

Phone the co-op office for information, with any questions or to report emergencies and power outages.

We will continue to update you as we know more but for now, please stay safe and healthy.  

Thanks for your patience and understanding during this time.
