A message to our Members

THANK YOU to Members

Thank you for your patience and understanding throughout the winter storm! Due in part to member efforts to conserve electricity, your electric cooperative system was able to navigate through several record-setting days without the need for controlled service interruptions (or rolling blackouts).

Extreme Weather Alert

Due to extreme and extended cold temperatures, HOEC and many utilities throughout the central United States including south Texas up to Missouri and states surrounding Missouri, continue to exceed all-time electricity demand. We are urging members to reduce their impact on the grid by reducing electricity use as much as possible.

Extreme cold may lead to peak usage

The frigid temperatures predicted for this weekend could possibly set a new peak usage for Howell-Oregon Electric Cooperative members. During the winter months it is very difficult when extremely cold weather hits to avoid setting new peak usage.

Warning of possible scam calls

Be aware: it appears there is a phone call scam targeting our members. The scammer is stating that you need to pay your electric bill immediately or your power will be shut off. If you feel you are being targeted by a scammer, simply hang up the phone and contact HOEC directly at 417-256-2131 or 1-888-HOE-POWER.
