Outage Reporting & MY WCEC App

WCEC’s mobile app allows members to report outages, pay their WCEC bills, and review usage data any time from mobile devices.

Get the free app by searching for “Wood County Electric Cooperative” in the App Store or in Google Play and then downloading. Once you have the app, create an online account here: Account Services Portal. Once there, you will select a username and password that you will use to log into your account and the app.  If you have trouble doing this, just give us a call at 903-763-2203, and we can walk you through it.
