Doniphan Electric Cooperative Association, Incorporated is a nonprofit, member owned organization that was founded in 1937 as part of the Rural Electrification Act to provide electric service to members of Doniphan County and areas in Atchison and Brown counties. It is located in Troy, Kansas. REA is now the Rural Utilities Service (RUS) and is part of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
Doniphan Electric Cooperative is the smallest Rural Electric Cooperative in the state of Kansas serving over 1,650 residential and business consumers. It employs four linemen that maintain the 467 miles of distribution line. The goal of Doniphan Electric Cooperative is to provide members safe and reliable service in a prompt and efficient manner at the most economically feasible rate.
Doniphan Electric is in the final stages of exchanging the previous analog and digital manual meters to automatic ones that transmit readings electronically. The data will be accessed for billing, troubleshooting and analyzing. This will allow for consistency with readings as we are able to access all readings at the same time on the same day of each month. Once fully implemented, your bills will reflect readings for each month in its entirety. Using Automatic Meter Readings should help ensure that billing is based on real-time consumption and end the need for estimates due to weather or access to a meter that has to manually be read in the field.
