Coronavirus COVID-19 Update

Salem Electric is following recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and federal, state, and local agencies regarding COVID-19. Polk County has entered Phase II and additional staff will be returning to the building while maintaining social distancing requirements. A date has not been determined to open the lobby to members. Before service disconnections are resumed, members will be contacted and encouraged to apply for financial assistance or to make payment arrangements to prevent disconnection. For residential members impacted by COVID-19, Salem Electric is offering a one-time $150 bill credit and for general service members a one-time $350 bill credit.
Board meetings will continue to be held virtually through August. Members who are interested in attending virtually need to preregister by emailing prior to each meeting date (July 28 and August 25).
