Welcome to BENCO Electric

BENCO Electric is a member-owned cooperative that provides electricity to over 14,000 members.  We are your local Touchstone Energy Cooperative; our mission is to provide you with the best possible service, at the lowest possible cost, consistent with sound business management.


COMING IN AUGUST!  Watch for a new look to your electric bill next month.  We are switching our billing and accounting software so next month your electric bill will have a new look.  Next month's newsletter will have a detailed explanation of the new bills. 


June 22, 2015 - Multiple Outages - BENCO Electric suffered many, wide-spread outages today (6/22/15).  All power should be restored by 4:30 pm.  If you are still experiencing an outage, please call our outage hotline at 507.387.7964.


June 11, 2015 - Phone Scams - BENCO Electric would like to warn members to stay vigilant about phone scams in the area.  We just received information from a BENCO member who answered their phone and a recorded message informed them that a representative from their company would be available to do a "power inspection" at their home on Wednesday between 4:00 pm and 4:30 pm.  Eventually during the call you will be asked to provide your credit card information.

The company is in no way affiliated with BENCO Electric.  If you receive a suspicious call or a call asking you for your credit card information, please hang up and call our office at 507.387.7963 or 1.888.792.3626.
