Linemen home after assisting with hurricane repairs

Eight linemen from HOEC who traveled south to assist crews from other Cooperatives with power restoration after the devastation from Hurricane Irma have arrived home safely. Upon their arrival, the crews sat down with CEO/General Manager Dan Singletary, and discussed some of things they saw, as well as some of the challenges they faced.

Linemen heading to Georgia and Florida for Hurricane Irma help

8 linemen from HOEC will be traveling south to assist crews from other cooperatives with power restoration after the devastation from Hurricane Irma. Along with HOEC, other Missouri electric cooperatives are also sending crews. Altogether, 154 linemen from 26 systems in Missouri will be responding to the call for help from electric cooperatives in the path of Hurricane Irma.

Singletary family gather supplies for Hurricane Harvey victims

Dan Singletary, CEO and General Manager of Howell-Oregon Electric Cooperative, along with his wife Rhonda recently coordinated efforts in West Plains to gather supplies to send to Hurricane Harvey victims in Texas.

Labor Day office hours notice

The HOEC business office will be closed on Monday, September 4, 2017, for the Labor Day holiday. As always, dispatchers will be available to serve members in the event of a power outage.

Be aware: some HOEC members received scam phone calls

At Howell-Oregon Electric Cooperative, we have heard from some of our members who have recently received scam phone calls from someone claiming to be with the cooperative. The caller threatens disconnection of electric service unless an immediate payment is made by phone.

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!

Back to school

Howell-Oregon Electric Cooperative, Inc., was pleased to participate in Back to School Fairs at Winona, Mountain View and Thayer. Dakota Bates, Member Communications Specialist, handed out packets to each of the students. The packets contained a pencil, ruler and eraser. We want to wish every student a safe and happy school year! Best of luck!

Stay safe during the solar eclipse on Monday August 21
