Please discuss with your electrician the location of the meter (see Meter and Ditch Requirement diagrams) before marking it on the site plan. Changing meter base location after service has been designed will require redesign of service and cause delay for connection.

As of January 1, 2004 CVEC members are eligible to purchase the energy of their electric service from a Competitive Service Provider (CSP), while continuing to receive distribution services from CVEC. Currently there are no registered CSP's in Virginia. If and when a CSP decides to provide competitive offers in Virginia, you will be able to compare their price for energy with CVEC's "price to compare". As a not-for-profit utility, CVEC will purchase energy for its members and pass it through at-cost.
The Customer Choice Legislation requires the Cooperative to make available a list of all its customers and their account information to all licensed CSP companies and this list is called the "Mass List". Unless you request that your account information be withheld from the Mass List, it will contain your account information, including your name, address, account number, and up to twelve months of your electricity consumption.
To have your account information withheld from the mass list, then download the "Opt-out Form" and return it to CVEC. You may also call a CVEC customer service representative at 1-800-367-2832 if you have any questions.
