HOEC appreciates your patience and understanding, and we thank you as well for using our website.

Notice to Members

The Howell-Oregon Electric Cooperative business office will be closed on Monday, September 7th in observance of the Labor Day holiday. Dispatchers will remain on duty to assist you in the event of a power outage.

Regarding the EPA's proposal

For 76 years, Howell-Oregon Electric Cooperative (HOEC) has been dedicated to providing affordable and reliable electricity to members. Affordable power is vital to the national economy. The most recent attack on affordable power has come from the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) attempt to further regulate carbon emissions at existing coal fired power plants throughout America.

Keeping power available, affordable, and reliable

From the desk of Dan Singletary, CEO/General Manager

During my career as your Manager at Howell-Oregon Electric Cooperative (HOEC), I have seen a lot of changes over the years. Our world has become more and more technical, requiring all of us to depend on readily available power.

How your power is generated

Associated Electric Cooperative, Inc. (AECI) is a generation cooperative that serves members of Howell-Oregon Electric Cooperative (HOEC). HOEC is one of 51 electric distribution cooperatives that AECI provides power to in Missouri, Southern Iowa and Northeast Oklahoma. To generate power for its 875,000 members, HOEC members included, AECI maintains a diverse resource portfolio.
