Member Rights & Bylaws
When you applied for electric service you were asked to pay a membership fee. When you paid your membership fee you joined a non-profit, member-owned cooperative that is dedicated to efficient management to provide you with reliable electric service at the lowest cost possible. Along with being a member of DETEC, you have rights and responsibilities. We in turn have a commitment to you to fulfill our obligations as a responsible business organization and to supply power at the lowest cost possible and to maintain the highest quality of service.
The rules by which Deep East Texas Electric Cooperative, Inc. is governed by are spelled out in its bylaws. The bylaws, and any amendments, are approved by the membership.
