Rate increase in April, first in seven years

Effective with the April billing statements, EnerStar Electric Cooperative will implement a small increase in its electric rates. The average EnerStar residential member uses about 1,000 kilowatt hours (kWh) of electricity per month, and these members will see a 3 percent increase in their bill.

Look for your board of directors election ballot

As a member-owner, you are an important part of the decision-making and policy-setting at EnerStar Electric Cooperative. And that means you have the right to vote annually for your board of directors. Directors are co-op members willing to give of their time to decide on the direction of co-op.

From Youth Tour rep to White House intern

In June 2018, my electric cooperative, EnerStar, sent me to Washington, D.C. on a week-long trip called Youth to Washington. The following summer, my brother Jerad was selected as one of EnerStar’s Youth Tour reps. When I picked Jerad up on the last day of his tour, we spent the day comparing stories from our separate trips. There were both tears and laughter. The only bummer was that we didn’t get to experience the city that had captured pieces of both of our hearts together.

Final call to apply for the Youth to Washington Tour


Deadline to represent EnerStar in D.C. is January 31

The deadline is quickly approaching to represent EnerStar Electric in Washington, D.C. this summer. For more than 50 years, electric co-ops of Illinois have given tomorrow’s leaders the opportunity to learn from today’s public officials, and EnerStar is looking for two outstanding students in our cooperative family to represent us at Youth Tour this year. 

Board petitions still available

The annual meeting of members is just around the corner, and the January 28, 2020 deadline to submit petitions is fast approaching. If you are interested in running for election to the EnerStar Board of Directors, pick up your petition now!

Planned Outage Notification Call List

If you depend on life support equipment, contact EnerStar

EnerStar does its best to keep the power on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. Yet despite our best efforts, outages do occur. For most members, this is an inconvenience, but for those who depend on electricity to power life support equipment, an outage can present a real challenge. To protect yourself, be prepared by installing a generator or having some other form of backup plan.
