Subject: K.C. Electric’s Proactive Approach to Coronavirus (COVID-19)

To our Member-Owners:

The safety and well-being of our Membership and employees is of utmost importance.  As part of that commitment, we wanted to take a moment to share our current stance and practices as it relates to the Coronavirus (COVID-19). 

We are closely monitoring this situation and following recommended practices as outlined by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO).  We are in continual communication with Lincoln Community Hospital to ensure we receive any new information that will impact us.  It is K.C.’s responsibility to have employees available to provide a critical service.

What this means for you:

  • We are strongly urging our members to pay bills online or on a mobile device via the SmartHub app to help avoid the possibility of spreading the virus in our offices. 
  • Please call one of our offices before you come in so we can attempt to find a solution without the need for you to visit one of our offices. 
  • If you have any symptoms of illness, PLEASE do not come into our offices.

We will continue to monitor the situation closely and release pertinent information with regards to your electric service as it becomes available. 



Our Mission

To provide our members with safe, reliable service at the lowest cost, while maintaining an environmentally responsible, accountable, and sustainable operation now and in the future.

Electric will no longer confirm or enter any passwords for web log-in or SmartHub.  Members now have the ability to reset their passwords.  If you need assistance, please contact one of the business offices and a temporary password will be sent to the email address associated with the billing account. 

K.C. Electric Association members can now select two-factor authentication for their account(s).  After logging into SmartHub, the two-factor authentication can be enabled from My Profile>Manage Two-Factor Authentication screen.  Select the Enable Two-Factor Authentication checkbox and complete the required information. 

Primary users can now add secondary users to their on-line account(s).  The primary user controls the maintenance of the credentials for secondary users including actions such as unsubscribing, resetting passwords and disabling two-factor authentication.  To add secondary users, after logging into SmartHub select My Profile>My Information>Manage My Registered Accounts>Manage Additional Users.  Clicking Add Users accesses the Add Additional Users dialog, allowing members to add an email address for an additional user.  Once the dialog is completed, the Manage Additional Users section will display the new information.  Please note, primary users cannot manage additional users from the Mobile application.

For questions or more information please contact K.C. Electric Association.
