Northfork Electric Cooperative Date of Incorporation: April 11, 1939


The organizational meeting for what would become Northfork Electric


Cooperative (NFEC) was held in the early fall of 1937 at the Doxey School east of Sayre, Okla. Several months and many meetings later, a charter was adopted and the new organization was incorporated. Members joining the cooperative were asked to sign a tentative contract and invest a $5 membership fee in their organization. All the planning and hard work paid off when, on Christmas Day 1939, the fi rst nine miles of line were energized. On April 1, 1940, NFEC held its fi rst Annual Meeting of the membership. By the end of the year, the cooperative had 216 member-owners and 135 miles of energized line. Today, Northfork Electric serves more than 6,900 meters on more than 2,500 miles of line in Beckham, Roger Mills, Washita, Greer, Custer, Harmon and Dewey counties.


Southeastern Electric Cooperative Date of Incorporation: August 28, 1939


In 1939, four years after signing of the Executive Order that allowed for electricity to arrive in rural Oklahoma, Southeastern Electric Cooperative (SEC) was ready to begin building line and received its fi rst load of poles. Nine directors were elected from the membership to determine major policies of SEC and a general manager was hired in August of 1939 to conduct the day- to-day business and carry out board policies. SEC has had fi ve general managers in its history, with Mr. Larry Speaks being the fi fth and current. Now, 75 years later, SEC is serving more than 14,100 meters for commercial, industrial, farm and residential installations in Atoka, Bryan, Choctaw, Coal and Johnston counties. The cooperative’s headquarters are located in Durant, Okla.


“When we got electricity, I went into our closet because it was the darkest place I could find. I turned on the light and just stared at it. It was a thrill to see that!”


Dean Kent, Northfork Electric Cooperative member


“I remember we could see the poles going up weeks prior to getting power. I was on our porch and my little sister, Sue, was playing on the floor inside the house. I remember looking at her and then all of a sudden, the lights came on and I started yelling for my Momma. It was quite the deal to finally have electricity.”
