Happy Veteran's Day!

This Friday, November 11th, Americans all across our great country will celebrate Veteran's Day and honor the many men and women who have served our country in uniform. All of us here at HOEC would like to thank all veterans for the many freedoms we enjoy as a result of their courage, commitment, and sacrifice. Thank you for keeping our country free!

Labor Day office hours notice

September is National Preparedness Month

Each September, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) sponsors National Preparedness Month to help Americans be prepared for and able to respond to a variety of emergencies - including those Mother Nature brings to our doorsteps. From tornadoes to floods, storms can cause destruction and power outages. It is important to be prepared with needed supplies, a plan, and safety knowledge.

Net Metering fairness for all members

Logo for Fairness Down The Lines program

Special interest groups want to change Missouri net metering law, unfairly shifting costs from the select few Missouri Electric Cooperative Member-Owners who have solar panels on their homes to the majority of Member-Owners who do not.

Our perspective is simple: that all Members are continuously connected to the grid, so all Members should pay evenly to maintain it.
