If you are currently a Sierra Electric Cooperative member and are moving to a new address that is also served by Sierra Electric, you will need to call our office to schedule the disconnect at the old address and the connect at the new address.
To expedite the process, you may review the requirements on the Start Service and Stop Service web page (see below buttons for links).
If you are moving into a new address that is currently connected by another person and you want to transfer the service into your name, you will need to call our office to schedule the transfer. Please note, both parties must agree to the transfer date to avoid interruption of power.
Transfer upon Death of a Member
The death of an individual member shall automatically terminate his/her membership. To continue receiving electric service, the person continuing to legally use, receive or purchase the service at the same location should contact Sierra Electric Cooperative to establish membership in order to avoid disconnection of service.
If the membership is held jointly, between husband and wife, or legal partnerships, the membership is converted to a membership in the name of the surviving spouse or partner and new partner or partners who continue to own or directly occupy or use the premises being furnished service.
In order to pass the interest of any patronage capital belonging to the membership of the deceased, we may require legal documentation, including a death certificate, probated will, or proof of court appointed personal representative(s) at the time of the transfer.
Termination of membership or conversion of a joint membership shall not relieve any person, or his/her estate, personal representative and heirs, from any debts due the Cooperative.
