MLEC offers qualified members heat pump financing at a low interest rate. You have ten years to repay the loan, and payments are added to the electric bill for convenience. Dual fuel units are eligible for financing.

For dwellings that have not previously had electric service, such as new homes and newly located manufactured homes, service fees and state electrical inspection fees will apply as well. For these costs, contact your local MLEC office and ask for customer service.

The day-to-day operations of MLEC are the responsibility of the CEO, Mr. Hal Womble. The CEO reports to a member-elected (that’s you!) Board of Directors. The Board of Directors is composed of 13 members - three from Hickman County, two from Houston County, four from Humphreys County, two from Lewis County and two from Perry County. Not only are they member-elected directors, they are also members of the cooperative.
MLEC buys electricity from the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA)
at wholesale rates and distributes it to MLEC members. TVA has no
control over the cooperative other than requiring that it meet certain
regulations and obligations of its power contract.
