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.

Restoration update

We have 99 members still without power in our service area. Remaining outages are primarily the result of several poles broken by high winds that require replacement. Crews continue working to safely restore power to all members as quickly as possible.

Outages due to overnight storms

Officials at Howell-Oregon Electric Cooperative report that approximately 1,391 members were without power following severe weather that moved through the HOEC service area.

Notice to members: Holiday Office Hours

The Howell-Oregon Electric Cooperative business office will be closed on Thursday, November 22nd, and Friday, November 23rd, for the Thanksgiving holiday. As always, dispatchers will be available to serve members in the event of a power outage.

Notice to Members

Davey Resource Group, a contractor for Howell-Oregon Electric Cooperative, Inc., is performing a pole audit on our behalf in our service area. This project will require their field representative to approach poles that may be on personal property. The data being collected will allow us to continue to provide the safe and reliable power that you have come to expect.
