Lane Electric Cooperative maintains insurance that will pay for damage to property only if and when the cooperative is liable. It is the responsibility of the member to submit a written claim to the cooperative.
If damage occurs to electric or electronic equipment through the cooperative’s electrical distribution system due to natural events (“Acts of God”) and/or the cooperative is not negligent or otherwise responsible, the member may be reimbursed for a maximum of $250.00 per year (per member) for those damages. Please call the office at 484-1151 to request a claim form to be mailed to you. The cooperative will consider payment only upon receipt from the member, a completed claim form, written documentation for repairs or justification for replacement of the damaged electric or electronic equipment as well as evidence that the member has no other means to recover their damages.
Under no circumstances will the cooperative pay for claims where the cooperative has no record of an occurrence that may have caused the damage or for damage resulting from actions of the public, other utilities, or power suppliers. The cooperative will not pay any claim submitted more than 60 days after the date of loss. Payment approval is subject to the cooperative’s sole discretion.
