Enjoy your holiday! Upgrade to Kiamichi line continues through August


An extensive line upgrade running from the Canadian substation may cause some members to notice brief interruptions as work progresses. The upgrade is expected to prevent overloaded circuits along that line and improve service reliability.


Work on the line will continue through August. While It is always KEC’s goal to have minimal interruption of service during the process, a few blinks may occur. Your patience is appreciated.
