It is an absolute joke that you have to notify MTEMC that you do not want to participate in operation round-up and ask for your money to be reimbursed. The default should be that you ask to be in operation round-up. MTEMC charges its customers crazy fees for everything and then they think it is a good idea to take even more from you for this ill conceived program. Two more complaints. I paid $50 for a meter inspection for my new construction temporary service. I was there and saw the guy do the inspection, it only took him 1 second and he drove across my grass and tore down my gravel drive so fast he launched rocks into the air. Lastly, when you call MTEMC the ladies who answer the phone are not helpful and rude.

MTEMC charged me $40 to hang a notice on my door telling me they would turn off my power when my bill was only 19 days late. I don't need a notice telling me that my bill is late. I haven't paid it! I know it's late! I got all the voice messages telling me I was late too. They already charged me a late fee. And if I don't pay this ridiculous fee, they will turn off my power. That's extortion! I think it's ridiculous to threaten to turn someone's power off for a bill that is 19 days late. 49 days late...maybe, but 19? Come on! I am disgusted with this company. They say they are MY company. I would never allow them to do that if it were MY company.

This place offers TERRIBLE service. The people who answer the phones are rude, they only allow a single name on an account so if a spouse calls in they refuse to talk them, and their "paperless billing" never comes to my email account. The snarky woman answering the phone told me that I needed to "check my spam account" but that was after she INSISTED that I was receiving a paper bill. She was so insistent that I should check with the postal carrier then changed her tune when she probed a bit further and realized that we were on paperless billing. When are we going to stand up and refuse to be treated this way with a monopolized service such as this?!?! They know we have no other choice in electric service so that gives them carte blanche to behave in any way they'd like.
Tips & Advices
Keep the following tips in mind:
  • Do not operate any electrical equipment while sitting or standing in water.
  • Don't overload extension cords or surge protectors.
  • Put caps on your electrical outlets if you have small children.
  • Call an electrician if you notice your sockets or switches are warm to the touch, discolored or if they make noise.
  • Keep electrical cords away from stoves, ovens and other sources of heat.
  • Do not use an appliance that has a frayed cord.
  • Do not staple extension cords into place or cover them with carpets or furniture.
  • When using extension cords, make sure to unwrap them before plugging them in.
  • Don't overuse extension cords. Have an electrician install extra outlets if you need a power source closer to you.
  • Only use light bulbs with the correct wattage for your lamps and light fixtures.
  • Contact a licensed electrician if you frequently blow fuses, since this can be a sign of an electrical wiring problem.
  • Have an electrician look at your fuse box to ensure you have the right size fuses and circuit breakers. The wrong size fuse or breaker can be a fire hazard.
  • If you have fault circuit interrupters installed in your electrical panel, make sure you test them at least once a month by turning them on and off.
It can cost from $40-$100 an hour depending on the job. This does not include additional costs for parts or trip fees. Make sure to ask in advance what they charge for or if they will provide a free quote.
In order to become a full-fledged professional, a person must undergo an apprenticeship with master and journeyman electricians. An apprentice needs 8,000 hours of practical work before graduating to the journeyman level. If an apprentice reaches journeyman status, he or she can complete most electrical work, but cannot design it until completing more testing along with 2,000 more on-the-job hours.
Yes. While all electricians need a license, not all of them do the same types of jobs.
  • Outside: These types of electricians work outdoors on electrical lines that connect to power plants.
  • Inside: Inside experts typically focus on commercial and industrial buildings that require a lot of power.
  • Residential: Residential electricians work with low-voltage systems and wiring to install fuse boxes and light fixtures.
Watch out for contractors that greatly underbid other electricians. If the price seems too good to be true, it probably is. Also, always remember to get the estimate in writing before settling on a company.
