eScore is TVA’s new residential energy efficiency program that allows homeowners to make improvements at their own pace, while earning rebates on qualified energy efficiency upgrades. Rebates are in addition to any state or federal tax credits. If you are in the market for a new heat pump, our low interest with 10 year financing Heat Pump Program is now part of eScore.

Additional Products & Programs:
The products and services listed below are available to any Tri-County Electric member. Please contact your local office for additional information.
Save time by enrolling in our Bank Draft Program which allows us to draft your checking or savings account on the date your bill is due – never early and no late fees!
Let us assist with organizing your monthly budget. With Due Date Selection you select the date your electric bill is due. We understand that sometimes a day or two can make a big difference. Choosing the date that’s best for you will allow you to avoid late penalties for the extra time you need.
Signing up for e-mail Notification for Bill Review provides you with a courtesy reminder that your bill is ready for viewing.
The energy right Home e-Valuation is a free “do-it-yourself” audit that allows you to answer questions specific to your home. After the information is submitted, a customized report will be prepared for your home that will identify the major energy users and provide information on how you can become more energy-efficient.
Enroll in the energy right New Homes Program before building your new home. Our member-owners who participate in the basic program are eligible for $200 for energy right + additional $100 for purchasing a Marathon Water Heater; those who participate in the platinum program are eligible for $300 for energy right + additional $100 for purchasing a Marathon Water Heater. Contact your local office for program requirements.
Our Gift Certificates make a perfect gift for most anyone and can be used on the electric bill or any product we sell.
Those interested in building solar or wind facilities to generate a portion of their electricity should contact us for information on the Generation Partners Program before starting the project. Another way of helping the environment is participation in the Green Power Switch Program. You can buy green power in 150 kWh blocks for $4/block/month. Buying just two blocks of green power per month for an entire year is the environmental equivalent of recycling 480 pounds of aluminum or planting an acre of trees!
The Levelized Billing Program has made electric bills affordable during the extremely hot and cold months of the year for thousands of our members. With no true-up month, this 12 month rolling average is not only a tremendous benefit for those on a fixed income. It’s for anyone who doesn’t like surprises when it comes to their electric bill!
For anyone who wants to buy their last water heater, we proudly offer the Marathon Water Heater. Dependable, energy efficient and environmentally friendly; that’s in addition to a six year warranty on parts, a lifetime warranty on the tank and a $100 rebate. 50 gallon (diameter: 23 1/2, height to top of fitting: 66.75) and 85 gallon (diameter: 28 1/4, height to top of fitting: 70.25) are available. Those members who qualify can also pay for the Marathon over 24 months at 0% interest on their electric bill.
One of products Tri-County Electric is proudest to offer is the NOAA Public Alert Radio. Prior to our securing a grant and providing electricity for a NOAA Weather Radio Transmitter at TVA’s Russell Hill site, many of our members were unable to receive NOAA weather radio alerts. Tri-County Electric’s efforts in making the NOAA transmitter a reality along with the NOAA weather radio donations we made to all schools, hospitals and nursing homes in our service area were reasons given for the cooperative to be selected for the prestigious Mark Trail Award issued by the National Weather Service in 2004. The purchase of your NOAA Public Alert radio can be added to your electric bill in 3 easy, 0% installments.
It’s convenient; it’s easy; it’s fast; it’s secure…Online Bill Payment allows members to log into their account and pay their bill online credit card or check. You can pay your bill while visiting our website!
Lightning can strike without warning, entering your home through the antenna, telephone, satellite or cable lines through the electrical panel. PANAMAX Point of Use Surge Protectors are a great way to protect the investments you’ve worked so hard to acquire and those who qualify can pay over 3 months with no interest.
The Pre-Pay Program allows members the flexibility of purchasing electricity before instead of after consuming and is ideal for those who wish to pay as they go. This program has a $50 reserve and eliminates late fees.
Our Safety Demonstration Trailer teaches the importance of electric safety in an interesting and entertaining method. The safety demonstration is enjoyed by all ages and can be viewed at our annual meeting each year. We also offer the demonstration to schools and civic organizations in our service area at no charge.
Through our Water Heater Credit Program, those members who purchase and install an electric water heater in our service area are eligible for a $25 credit on their electric bill.
