Established in 1945, CHEC is a member-owned not-for-profit electric cooperative. Today our electricity is generated by Associated Electric Cooperative, Inc., and is transmitted through KAMO Power's transmission lines to 15 substations and almost 18,000 meters.
Please be aware of a potential scam finding it's way into electric cooperatives. DOXO is a company placing digital ads on websites persuading members to make a payment through "doxo.com". This company is not affiliated with CHEC. Please do NOT use this site when making a payment. Members should ONLY use the official CHEC website, or SmartHub app for online bill payments. Unfortunately, members who use "doxo.com" to pay their bill will be hit with high fees and additional charges on top of their regular bill.
Please be aware Osmose Utilities Service, Inc. continues to inspect and treat power poles owned by CHEC. Osmose crews will be primarily working in areas around Vian. Osmose will inspect and test poles making sure they have the proper strength requirements. Poles that pass all strength requirements will be treated to prevent future decay.
PLEASE NOTE: Due to recent spikes in COVID-19, we are temporarily closing our lobbies effective November 4 until further notice. All credit card convenience fees will be suspended until lobbies are reopened. Our drive-thru lanes are open at both offices, and we encourage members to use the Smart Hub app, secure Pay- by-Phone, or sign up for automatic bank draft as convenient methods for payments. If you need assistance, please call our Stigler office at 800-328-2368 or Sallisaw office at 918-775-2211. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we do our part to protect our members and our employees. Stay well!
