V A L L E Y ELECTRALITE By George Continued from page 1.


Electric Cooperative in the Oklahoma Panhandle. I am a Registered Professional Engineer with a Bachelor of Science degree from Oklahoma State University. I have a great job and would not want to trade with anyone, especially anyone here.


Canadian Valley Electric Cooperative serves approxi- mately 24,000 retail electric customers in the east central part of Oklahoma, with an investment in electric distribution plant of about 100 million dollars, making up 5,000 miles of electric distribution lines. Of these 24,000 retail custom- ers, 90% are residential consumers. Approximately 40 % of these residential customers are retired.


Our service territory is located from the eastern edge of Oklahoma City to Lake Eufaula between the Deep Fork of the North Canadian River and the South Canadian River, an area of approximately 3,500 square miles. The total electric capacity requirement of our member-owner-customers is about 160-megaWatts on a hot summer day or during cold winter night. We do have both in Oklahoma regularly. At Canadian Valley Electric Cooperative our purpose is simple and straight forward, “To provide electric utility ser- vice to our customers at the lowest possible cost consistent with sound business practices.” This mission guides us daily and we have not strayed. We believe if we can be successful in our mission, it will give the customers we serve the best possible opportunity for a better lifestyle and the businesses that look to us for electric power and energy, the greatest op- portunity to be successful, to grow, to prosper and to provide jobs for our member-customers. Profit is not our purpose. Our purpose is to help others prosper and profit. Most of the territory we serve would not be considered a desirable or even a feasible service territory to a for-profit electric utility. But that is okay, together we make it work. Our employees realize the rewards of their jobs go far beyond the paycheck. That is because our motive and our purpose is to serve our owners. Are all our custom- ers happy with their electric bill? Absolutely not. They know their electric bills are too high and they will tell you. We are locally governed by a board of trustees chosen by and from our customer-owners. Our board of trustees knows a little about elections. They must stand for election every three years. But they must face the cooperative’s customers every day at work, in the coffee shop and at church.
