October 21st Storm Recovery - Summary

Approximately 4,600 members were without power as a result of storms that moved through the area in the early morning hours of October 21st. Outages were caused by high-winds and lightning. High-winds coupled with saturated grounds caused trees from outside the right-of-way to fall onto lines causing the lines to fall to the ground. A total of 45 power poles were broken.

Committee Appointment for HOEC's CEO

Dan Singletary, CEO/General Manager of Howell-Oregon Electric Cooperative, was recently appointed as a district representative to the Internal Operations Committee of the Association of Missouri Electric Cooperatives (AMEC), Jefferson City. AMEC provides training as well as other services to the state's 47 electric cooperatives, which serve more than 560,000 rural members.

Be Mindful of Work Zone Safety

There are times when Howell-Oregon Electric Cooperative must put trucks and personnel in roadways to make repairs or install new equipment to keep power on at your home or business. Crews in these situations already face the hazards of dealing with high voltage, and they increase their risk when establishing a work zone in the roadway.

Notice to members

Davey Resource Group, a contractor for Howell-Oregon Electric Cooperative, Inc. (HOEC), will be performing an audit on our system on our behalf in our service area. This project will require their field representative to approach poles and lines (both overhead and underground) that may be on personal property.

Notice to Members: HOEC office closed on Labor Day

The Howell-Oregon Electric Cooperative business office will be closed on Monday, September 2nd in observance of the Labor Day holiday. Dispatchers will remain on duty to assist you in the event of a power outage.
