Emergency Phone Numbers
The offices of Barry Electric Cooperative are closed on Holidays.
As always we will have crews on standby if an emergency should arise. If your power does go off, first check all your breakers. Then contact your neighbors to determine if they also are out of service. If you know of any reason for the outage, please report the location of the problem. A broken pole or wire, trees on the line, or sparks coming from a pole or wire can all cause trouble.
Many outages can be quickly repaired, but can sometimes take hours to find. Reporting these problems will save our crews valuable time. Also it is important to call in if you do have an outage. This will let us know the extent of the problem so crews can be dispatched more efficiently.

What is an electric cooperative?
An electric cooperative is a non profit electricity provider that is owned and operated by its customers or members. Learn more about what sets electric cooperatives apart from traditional utility providers.
What is a Membership to my Cooperative?
Electric cooperatives are owned by the people, or members, who use the power the co-op provides. Its customers are also its owners. Electric cooperatives operate on a not-for-profit basis, with excess margins returned to the member either in the form of patronage capital or in stable rates and infrastructure.
Electric cooperatives are governed by a board of directors elected from among the membership.
All members are asked to participate in an annual membership meeting at which board members are elected.
Electric cooperatives adhere to these seven guiding principles:
- Voluntary and open membership
- Democratic member control
- Member economic participation
- Autonomy and independence
- Education, Training and information
- Cooperation among cooperatives and
- Concern for community
