The cause of many power outages

Southern Missouri is sculpted of gently rolling hills, forests, streams and rivers with an abundance of wildlife. While we love our scenery, it can often be challenging for HOEC to deliver reliable electricity. Unfortunately, our abundance of wildlife can cause interruptions that are out of our control. Birds and snakes can certainly cause problems, but squirrels are the biggest culprit!

From the desk of Dan Singletary

During my career as CEO/General Manager at Howell-Oregon Electric Cooperative, Inc. (HOEC), I have witnessed and been faced with numerous challenges that affect not only our cooperative, but our industry in general. This year, however, as a cooperative, we were presented with one of our biggest challenges yet.

Monday morning outage update

Approximately 3,000 HOEC members were without power following severe weather that moved through the area late Saturday evening. Crews were dispatched and began working immediately to safely restore power. Outages were caused by high-winds and lightning and were widespread throughout the service area. At this time there are still approximately 359 members without power.
