currents Oops, We Goofed!


In the March issue of Country Living, the story on ECE Community Solar listed a wrong number. Members should call ECE at 918-756-0833. We are sorry for the confusion.


Are You Qualified To Be A Co-op Trustee?


To serve as an East Central Electric (ECE) trustee, you must be a member of the coop for at least one year prior to the nomination. You must continue to be a member after the election with your primary residence located in the district you represent.

employee or employed by an ECE subsidiary or labor union, or anyone who has represented the co-op within five years of the filing period. Also, you cannot currently be employed by, or have financial interests in, any ECE competitor, supplier or subsidiary.


Elected public official or candidates who are paid more than $1,000 per year for their work are not eligible to serve as trustee.


You must not have been convicted, pled guilty or no contest to a felony. Co-op trustees cannot be a close relative of an incumbent trustee, current ECE employees, or individual who has been an ECE employee within the last five years.

Interested in going solar? Below are more details on East Central Electric’s Community Solar project.


What is ECE Community Solar?


The East Central Electric(ECE) Community Solar project allows members to purchase a subscription to one or more solar panels and receive a credit for a portion of the output of the kilowatt-hours generated from the project site.


How does it work?


Solar panels are installed south of ECE Headquarters in Okmulgee, along Highway 75. Members subscribe to a per-panel share or multiple shares of the system production. Members receive a credit on their monthly bill based on their portion of the system production. Participants do not own any of the panels or infrastructure.


What are the benefits?


• Members enjoy the benefits of solar power without worries of maintaining solar panels or finding an appropriate location for panels on their property.


• Members have the opportunity to directly invest in a renewable energy project and receive a credit from it on their monthly bill.


What does it cost?


To participate, each member pays a one-time subscription fee of $350 per panel. A member may subscribe to up to 25 panels. The number of subscriptions for panels is limited to the amount needed to serve their primary residence only. There are 950 panels available and the subscriptions will be sold on a first come, first serve basis.


What do I get for my participation?


• Participating members receive a percentage of the total solar array production each month based on their contribution to the project.


• Each month, the total kilowatt-hour (kwh) output of the solar system is divided by the number of panels.


• A credit amount per kwh is determined each year and applied to each participant’s monthly kwh output. The first year credit is $.034 per kwh.


• A separate line on the participant’s electric bill will reflect the credit multiplied by the member’s share of the total solar system production for that month.
