Lake Region Electric Co- operative’s outdoor lighting is the most convenient way to have the extra light you need around the house, especially during those long winter nights. Out- door lighting provides peace of mind and it can


help to lengthen your evening outdoors, as well as adding protection for your family and property by removing dark shadowed areas. LREC offers outdoor lighting for your home and business. We install the light; we repair it if

it stops working, all for a standard monthly fee. Photoelectric controls on top of these lights help save energy by automatically turning on your lights at dusk and off at dawn. The power for the light does not go through your meter. Your monthly lease charge includes all electricity for operation and we will repair or replace the light if there is a problem.


All new installations and replacements will be a high-pressure sodium (HPS) light. For more information about LREC’s outdoor security lighting, call 918-772-2526 or 800-364-LREC or visit our website at www.lrecok.coop for agreement forms and cost.


KAMO Electric Substation Safety Training


Time to Fall Back Daylight savings time reminder: be sure to set your clocks back one hour on November 6th.

Electric substations are places where electrici- ty is stepped down from the high voltages used to move it over long distances to the lower voltages used for the distribution lines. You see these lines running up and down rural roads bringing power to you. To make that energy safe for household use, a pole-mount transformer or a pad-mount transformer cuts the voltage once more, to be- tween 120 and 240 volts.


Substation are critical parts of your electric cooperative system and dangerous places to be. Lake Region Electric Cooperative joined with KAMO Power, LREC’s electric transmission provider, to offer substation safety trainings to linemen crews who may be in a situation where they will have to work inside a substation. These trainings are offered throughout the year at coop- eratives across the state.


There are many parts of a substation that can cause serious injury and Lake Region Electric linemen are trained to work inside substations. Even so, they still must take careful precautions

Lake Region Electric Cooperative along with KAMO Power’s highly skilled and trained employees are the only people authorized to enter one of our substations. Give us a call at 918-772-2526 or 800-364-LREC if you have any questions or concerns about a substation.
