Update on Weekend Storm Outages

Approximately 445 members were without power following storms that moved through the area on Friday afternoon. This was followed by approximately 900 members being affected due to storms that moved through on Sunday afternoon.

Stay Away from Downed Power Lines

Tornadoes, high winds, heavy rains and lightning can leave destruction in their wake. Once a severe storm has passed, it doesn’t mean the dangers have. Hazards can be left behind in the aftermath of a severe summer storm. One of those dangers is downed power lines.

HOEC Scholarship Recipients

Howell-Oregon Electric Cooperative, Inc., was very pleased to offer four $750 scholarships to area high schools this year. These high schools are rotated every year and are categorized by their region. The applications are sent to a third party judge to be reviewed and graded. They were judged by a committee at the Association of Missouri Electric Cooperatives located in Jefferson City.

Student interns

Each summer, Howell-Oregon Electric Cooperative seeks interns in Accounting and Electrical Engineering. These internships are designed to give students the opportunity to receive hands-on experience in their career field prior to graduation. This summer, we are happy to welcome Cynthia Peak (Accounting) and Justin Newman (Electrical Engineering)!
