Existing Meter

If there is an existing meter on your property, please follow these steps to get your service started.

Complete a membership application.

Service/Membership applications must be completed even if you already are a WKRECC member at another location.

Applicants must take the completed service/membership application to a WKRECC business office (Benton, Murray, Mayfield). Out-of-town applicants should call WKRECC at 270-247-1321 to arrange receipt of the application.

An applicant for service must provide:

  • A photo ID
  • The service address
  • The meter number at the property (meter numbers are seven-digit numbers located on the face of your meter).

Membership fees and connection fees are due at this time. Deposits may also be required on residential properties based on your utility credit rating. On commercial properties, the required deposit is equal to two months average usage.

Once you have submitted the necessary information and paid all required fees/deposits, WKRECC can typically have the power turned on by the close of the following business day. Factors that may affect our ability to connect your service include weather and workload, but service will be connected as soon as possible after your visit.
