Articles of Incorporation
Hawkeye’s Articles of Incorporation are approved by the Secretary of State of the State of Iowa. Originally Incorporated December 21, 1938.
The Bylaws for Hawkeye REC were initially adopted January 3, 1939.
Our tariffs provide us with the opportunity for all cooperative board, staff and members to better understand the cooperative’s policies and procedures that allow for safe, reliable, efficient and economical electric service to be provided to the member-consumers.
What is a tariff? A tariff simply means the entire body of rates, tolls, rentals, charges, classifications, rules, procedures, policies, etc., adopted and filed with the Iowa Utilities Board (IUB) by an electric utility in fulfilling its role of furnishing electric service. Electric Cooperatives are required to file their tariff with the board, and must maintain the tariff filing in a current status.
Line Extension Policy
A member needs to complete, sign and return a pre-engineering agreement with the corresponding fees. After receipt of the agreement and fees the line staking technician will arrange for an inspection of the project. For any service improvement or new construction on a permanent site, the line staking technician will determine the cost of the project. Depending on the projections, the member may have to contribute to the cost of the project.
Small Distributed Generation Policy
This policy provides the application requirements for members (Owners) who have an interest of interconnecting distributed generators to the Hawkeye REC (Cooperative) distribution. This policy provides a summary of the interconnection guidelines that are covered in the Cooperative electric tariffs.
Identity Theft Prevention Program – Red Flag Policy
Your cooperative cannot provide information to anyone whose name is not on the account, so please place the names of all individuals who are responsible on the account. For example, if the account is in the wife’s name, your cooperative cannot give the amount due to the husband if his name is not on the account.
According to cooperative Policy #208 Identity Theft Prevention Program, your cooperative cannot provide information to anyone whose name is not on the account.
Trees are a tremendous asset to homeowners and the environment, providing shade, wildlife habitat, and aesthetic value to all of us. Unfortunately, trees are a leading cause of power outages, especially when the wind blows. Hawkeye performs routine maintenance of trees and other vegetation on over 2,000 miles of overhead rights-of-way. These routine vegetation management activities are essential to maintain reliable electric service to our members and to provide for the safety of your family and the general public.
Learn more about our vegetation management program.
There may be times when you have a question regarding your electric service or the bill you receive from Hawkeye REC. Or maybe you have a complaint; if so, we would like to know.
