News Updates

Saturday, October 25th, MCEC will have a short outage in the morning to transfer loads and another short outage in the afternoon to return the system to normal operation.  This work is needed to relocate our transmission line for a road improvement project in Waterloo.  Due to the abnormal loading conditions, we are asking that everyone conserve on their electric consumption as much as possible.  It is our intention to keep everyone’s electric service on during this project, but we may have to turn the power off in certain areas if the loading on the system exceeds our anticipated levels.  If you experience dimming lights or a loss of power during this time, please contact us at (618) 939-7171.  We apologize for any inconvenience this project may cause, and we appreciate your understanding.
