Welcome to Columbus Electric Cooperative, Inc (CEC)

We are a nonprofit consumer-owned electric system established to provide electric service to rural southwestern New Mexico and southeastern Arizona. We’re glad we can be of service in providing your electric power needs.

We’re open Monday through Friday from 8:00 am until 5:00 pm. Contact us with any questions or requests. After-hour emergency services are available by calling (800) 228-0579.

Enchantment Magazine is mailed to you each month by our statewide organization in Santa Fe. It covers cooperatives and people throughout New Mexico and has a monthly report from Tri-State Generation & Transmission Association, our power supplier.
CEC’s newsletter, Columbus Currents, is mailed with your monthly bill. We encourage you to read it to keep informed and up to date with your cooperative and the events that affect it.

We provide many consumer services, including energy saving water heaters. We also offer rebates for certain appliances.  

Again, welcome to CEC. Please let us know how we can assist you. Your comments and suggestions are always welcome.
