A NEWSLETTER FOR PEC’S ELECTRIC MEMBERS | 3


The Power with PrePaid Continued from page 1


No Deposits That’s right. No deposit. Members with no credit history with PEC typically require a security deposit of $300 or more to establish service. PrePaid members have no deposit. Just pre-pay for your electricity up front, then make payments on your terms. You can switch back to post-pay after your account is secured. And if you have previously paid a deposit on your existing account, that amount plus interest will be applied to your account, which would be included in your initial quoted amount to enroll.


Manage Your Usage and Balance Log in to your account for balance and usage information, and manage your low-balance notifi cations using PEC’s automated balance inquiry line at (580) 272-1507. You may also log in through your SmartHub account. Emails are only sent if the balance is low.

Monday through Friday, 8 AM - 5 PM at (580) 332-3031 or outside Ada 1-877-456-3031. TREES AND UTILITIES CAN CO-EXIST I


n 2017 the Arbor Day Foundation named PEC a 2017 Tree Line USA utility in honor of its commitment to proper tree pruning, planting and care inside its service area. 851311300


PEC is one of two electric cooperatives in the state to achieve the status and at 18 years, PEC carries the longest running Tree Line USA utility designation for an Oklahoma cooperative.


Tree Line USA, a partnership between the Foundation and the National Association of State Foresters, recognizes public and private utilities for pursuing practices that protect and enhance America’s trees. Tree Line USA promotes the dual goals of delivering safe and reliable electricity while maintaining healthy community forests.


“Trees are a critical part of urban and rural landscapes all across the United States,” said Dan Lambe, President of the Arbor Day Foundation. “Service providers like People’s Electric Cooperative demonstrate that it’s possible for trees and utilities to co-exist for the benefi t of communities and citizens.”


Led by Lee McElroy, PEC’s Director of Environmental Services and Vegetation


Management and certifi ed arborist, PEC met fi ve requirements to be designated as a Tree Line USA utility. We follow industry standards for quality tree care, have annual worker training in best tree care practices, participate in and sponsor tree- planting and public education programs, have a tree-based energy conservation program and participate in Arbor Day celebrations.

Although vegetation growing too close to power lines and distribution equipment causes 15 percent of power interruptions according to the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA), the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) estimates a single tree has the cooling eff ect of 10 room-sized air conditioners running 20 hours a day.


In order to ensure dependable service, PEC is diligent in its vegetation management. PEC crews remove and prune trees near our power lines at no cost to our members in order to keep the electric lines free of trees and brush.


If you see a tree touching an electric line or in danger of falling into the electric line or if you have questions regarding tree trimming, contact Lee McElroy at (580) 559-8482.
