A SUPPLEMENT TO OKLAHOMA LIVING


LIVEWIRE JULY 2016 | VOLUME 67 ISSUE 7 | PUBLISHED FOR MEMBERS OF TRI-COUNTY ELECTRIC COOPERATIVE BOARD DISTRICTS COLORADO Elkhart Kenton


Cimarron County


2 Boise City CEO VIEW


Reliable Service By Zac Perkins


No one likes it when their power goes out. That’s why TCEC works hard to ensure that happens as little as possible. We invest in our system infrastructure to ensure it remains safe and reliable.


We also invest in our employees, who are highly skilled and trained professionals. Our linemen go through an up to five year journeyman lineman apprenticeship program. The journeyman program includes on the job training and a lineworker certification program that is approved through the U.S. Department of Labor Office of Apprenticeship.


When our members experience an outage, our employees work hard to restore power safely and quickly. We have developed internal processes so members can be notified on Facebook and Twitter when outages occur. After September, members will be able to enroll in outage text notifications thanks to an improved software system. We also offer an outage map for members to stay up-to-date.
