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.
As we move into the final month of 2021, we are still living through unique and extraordinary times. However, it is exciting times as well. Our new fiber initiative has the potential to have as much impact now as the introduction of electricity did for cooperative members back in 1948.
Rural electric co-op members asked to conserve electricity Due to unseasonably high temperatures, members of Cookson Hills Electric Cooperative have been asked to safely conserve electricity as the three-tiered system of electric cooperatives continues to do everything possible to meet members’ energy needs.
Due to an increase in Covid cases, we have decided to close our lobbies effective Wednesday, January 12th. This closing includes both our Stigler and Sallisaw offices. Our drive-thru windows will remain open during this time. Please feel free to contact us at 800-328-2368 if you have questions or need something that requires a visit to our office and we will be happy to make arrangements for you. Thank you for your understanding!
