OUR MISSION

Our mission of “improving the quality of life of our members at a reasonable cost” guides us as we meet the diverse needs of our service area in Southern Illinois. Serving members in portions of ten counties, including Franklin, Jackson, Johnson, Monroe, Perry, Randolph, Union, Williamson, Washington, and Saint Clair, we provide high-quality electric service at reasonable rates. We benchmark our efforts by our four core values: integrity, accountability, teamwork and commitment to community. At Egyptian Electric Cooperative Association, our employees serve you and we make management decisions based on these values. In other words, we desire to truly live up to your expectations!

Member Warning: Doxo.com
Member Warning: 3-21-2017
There is an on-line bill pay website that appears to be affiliated with EECA, but it is not. Doxo.com is third-party website that allows people to pay their electric bills via their site. However, doxo.com may charge the member extra fees, and EECA cannot control when we will receive the member payments from doxo.com, possibly resulting in a late payment from the member or even disconnection due to non-payment. To make sure you’re paying EECA directly, visit our website, www.eeca.coop, or our SmartHub online bill payment portal, eeca.smarthub.coop. EECA will not honor any issues resulting from the use of any payment method not authorized by EECA.
As always, if you receive suspicious phone calls or emails, from someone claiming to be a representative of EECA, requesting payment, please call EECA at 1-800-606-1505.

New Headquarters- 9-28-2016

The Egyptian Electric Cooperative Board of Directors is entering into an agreement with Cooperative member Samron Midwest Contracting of Murphysboro to build a new corporate headquarters south of the intersection of Route 4 and Route 13/127. The new facility will replace the current Murphysboro facility, and a portion of the Steeleville facility. It has been decided to retain the Steeleville site as an operations center. As it has always been, electric service for all of our members and the cost to our members throughout the entire service area will continue to be of the highest priority.
