You also have 24/7 remote access to your account via SmartHub!
- SmartHub – This free app provides members complete access to their BCEC accounts. You can view your usage, billing and payment history, and submit questions or service requests to us whether you access SmartHub through our website or by downloading and using the app on your smart phone or tablet. You will need to have your BCEC account number handy to get started – please call us if you need help with that.
Members experiencing financial hardship due to COVID-19 closures and related instances, please contact us. CARES Act legislation allocated funding to provide economic relief, and USDA has a helpful document that describes and links to various resources. Visit https://www.rd.usda.gov/sites/default/files/USDA_COVID-19_Fed_Rural_Resource_Guide.pdf to access that helpful guide. USDA has implemented Coronavirus Food Assistance Program 2 for agricultural producers who continue to face market disruptions and associated costs because of COVID-19. USDA’s Farm Service Agency will accept CFAP 2 applications through December 11, 2020. Visit https://www.farmers.gov/cfap?utm_medium=email... for more information or to apply for assistance.
BCEC is thankful to be part of an area that wholeheartedly works to take care of others, and we vow to continue doing our part to serve our members and communities. We will continue to monitor the Covid-19 conditions in our service area and may adjust office hours and procedures as necessary to protect and accommodate our employees. Our prayers for health and peace go out to each and every one of you.
