Your Membership

By simply signing a membership application and paying a security deposit, you become a member/owner of this non-profit electric cooperative.

Security deposits are assessed on a per meter basis and are equal to two times the average of the previous 12 months usage, with a minimum of $150.00. Deposits can be reduced to the minimum of $150 if a letter of credit is provided and approved.

After 12 months of consecutive, on-time payments, security deposits will be credited back to member’s active electricity accounts.  Deposits for accounts that don’t meet these requirements will be held until they achieve this or terminate their membership with us.  At Termination of membership, any security deposits will be credited to the outstanding balance with any remainder refunded.

As a member, you are part owner of the cooperative. You also help to run Vigilante through the elected board of trustees. They are members of the cooperative, not employees, and are your voice in establishing the policies and procedures of your cooperative. 

The area served by Vigilante is divided into 9 districts, each district having one representative on the board of trustees. The board of trustees meets monthly to conduct the business of the cooperative. They hire the general manager who hires the employees and manages the daily affairs of the cooperative. Trustees are elected to a three-year term at the annual meeting.
