Planting Grassroots Power

Missouri’s farmers plant and harvest some of the finest crops grown in America. Farmers know the importance of timing. You can’t plant too early because of the possibility of a late frost, but planting too late may not give the crop enough time to produce abundantly.

Notice to members

Beginning on Friday, December 21st our drive-through will be closed for maintenance. The maintenance is expected to last a few days. We appreciate your patience and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

Holiday office hours


The HOEC business office will be closed starting at noon on Christmas Eve (Monday, Dec. 24) and all day on Christmas (Tuesday, Dec. 25). Dispatchers will be on duty with service linemen on call to serve members in the event of a power outage. The office will also be closed New Year's Day (Tuesday, Jan. 1).

Cold mornings can result in peak usage

During the cold days in winter and the hot days of summer, Howell-Oregon Electric Cooperative (HOEC) encourages members to participate in any peak alerts that may occur.

Substantial progress in power restoration

As of the time of this post, HOEC reporting shows just 3 members remaining without power after poles were broken by powerful wind and storms last night, resulting in initial outages of almost 1,400.

We appreciate the patience and understanding of all members as our crews continue to work to restore electrical service in as timely a manner as is safely possible.
