Want to save energy and money? We have apps for that!

Let us help you detect


energy leaks! If your home is losing energy, perhaps its time for a thorough inspection. Choctaw Electric Cooperative’s employs two energy use specialists that are trained to help you find sources of energy loss in your home. CEC’s energy use specialists will perform a thorough energy audit of your home to detect sources of energy loss, note inefficient appliances and help you find ways to make your home more energy efficient.


Energy audits are always free for co-op members. To take advantage of this service, please give us a call today.

emember the days when people kept in touch with far-flung family and friends by writing letters? I’m talking about tangible, handwritten notes


on stationery, sent via the U.S. Postal Service with a stamp.


Today, thanks to laptops, smartphones, and tablet devices, e-mail, texting, and social media have changed the way we talk to each other. And while these advances can make us feel like we’re “wired to the world” at all times, they can help us save energy, too.


As a member of Touchstone Energy Cooperatives, Choctaw Electric Cooperative is proud to offer two mobile apps: Together We Save.com—Save Energy, Save Money, and one for our popular Co-op Connections Card.


The TogetherWeSave.com—Save Energy, Save Money app, the newest addition to the Together We Save energy efficiency campaign, lets you see how much money you could pocket each month by switching from traditional incandescent lightbulbs to compact fluorescent lamps (CFLs) or light-emitting diodes (LEDs). In addition, you can use the app to evaluate energy guzzlers in your home. For example, what does it cost to run a dishwasher for an hour? Choctaw Electric kilowatt- hour rates needed for the calculations are available in the app by entering your zip code and selecting our name.


In addition, the app delivers handy pop- Marathon goes the distance.


Choctaw Electric Cooperative offers Marathon brand water heaters at wholesale prices. Marathon water heaters are the most efficient units on the market today—and their seamless, insulated design comes with a lifetime guarantee against leaks. Please contact CEC today for sizes and details.

up “Tip of the Day” reminders on ways to make your home more energy efficient and displays important Choctaw Electric alerts and updates. The free app is available for Apple iPhones and iPads at the iTunes store and for Android smartphones at Play. Google.com. Search for “Together We Save.”


Your Co-op Connections Card connects you to savings on prescriptions, restaurants, hotels, groceries, and lots of other services from national and local retailers. The free Co-op Connections Card app uses GPS technology to help you quickly locate stores and businesses offering discounts and even share your favorite deals. Android and Apple iPhone versions of the app are available at www.Connections.Coop.


At Choctaw Electric, we take a lot of pride in our promise to provide you with safe,


reliable and affordable electric service. But our promise goes beyond that. We are also dedicated to improving the quality of life in the communities we serve.


These two money-saving apps are some of the ways we’re looking out for you. Find more ways to save at www.TogetherWeSave. com or wwww.choctawelectric.coop.


Have a merry Christmas!
