Electric Service Connections (aid to construction)

When an individual or a business becomes a Platte-Clay Electric Cooperative customer, they become a part owner in the nonprofit, rural electric cooperative, and share in profits (if any) each year.

The co-op will install a service drop. For charges please refer to the Engineering Rules and Regulations. For service, call 816-628-3121 during regular business hours.

For details on temporary service, costs beyond the standard drop length, underground service, subdivisions and rural service, please refer to the Engineering Rules and Regulations, or call the office, 816-628-3121. These are service requests which must be reviewed and pre-approved by the co-op’s engineering department.

Please call 816-628-3121 during regular business hours or e-mail providing the address or nearest cross streets and day time telephone numbers.

Alternate Energy Connections

For alternate energy connections, called “net metering,” please see the Application and Agreement for Interconnection and Net Metering, below, which can be downloaded. Please click, print, complete and mail to Platte-Clay Electric Co-op, PO Box 100, Kearney, MO, 64060, Attention Engineering.

Members routinely request information on companies that can provide assistance with distributed generation and net metering. The Missouri Department of Natural Resources provides a list, which we are sharing here:

Platte-Clay is providing the list as a courtesy – this is not a co-op endorsement.

Construction Site Plan Form

Start here if you’re going to build or remodel.

Please take some time to determine what changes you would like to make to your property in the future. Dream a little and ask other members of your family or business what changes they would like to see—in other words, try to future-proof your location. That way you and Platte-Clay can determine the best way to route power to your building(s) and avoid costly changes.

Once you have completed the form and have a sketch of your location, please call Platte-Clay, 628-3121 and a member of the engineering group will meet with you.
