CMS Electric Cooperative, Inc., was founded in April 1945 and energized its first lines in June 1948. Originally, CMS took its name from the three counties it was chartered to serve: Clark, Meade and Seward. However, soon Comanche County was also added to the service area. The service area covers approximately 4800 square miles with approximately 2500 miles of line. We currently service Clark, Comanche, Meade, Seward with portions of Barber, Gray, Stevens, Kiowa, Ford and Haskell counties.
Today, the cooperative serves approximately 5800 meters, consisting of residential, small commercial, large power and industrial loads. As with any cooperative, we are member owned, which makes us continually working to keep our rates competitive while still maintaining excellent service. Our main office is located in Meade, Kansas at 509 E. Carthage St, which is across the street from the Meade District Hospital on Highway 54. Our satellite office is located in Coldwater, Kansas at 603 N. Central. A professional staff is available to assist you with your services at both locations.
Our goal at CMS Electric is to keep your power on at all times. However due to storms, equipment failure, power supply problems or the like, you may experience a loss of power. Please call 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 800-794-2353 to report service problems. You can also report power issues after hours 844-755-8728. Our linemen are on-call 24/7. We strive to give you the best service we possibly can and appreciate your comments and suggestions.
