Regulations seek to reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from existing power plants in Oklahoma by more than 35%.


Cooperatives support a cleaner environment. The two Oklahoma G&T co-ops are already using renewable and alternative resources as part of a mix to produce clean power.


What is understood now is that these regulations could increase your electric bill and threaten thousands of jobs across the nation.


We are urging the EPA to work with us on these regulations supporting an ALL-OF-THE-ABOVE approach which would include ALL sources of power generation.


Oklahomans have made their voice heard. We’re approaching the 10,000-comment mark. Visit www.action.coop today to help us reach that goal!


COMMENT PERIOD EXTENDED TO DECEMBER 1! NOVEMBER 2014 5 T


he Oklahoma Association of Electric Cooperatives (OAEC) has received notices from East Central Oklahoma Electric Cooperative and Arkansas Valley Electric Cooperative about


phone scams targeting co-op members. Members from East Central Oklahoma Electric Cooperative report-


ed callers identify themselves as electric cooperative employees and ask the member to purchase a “Green-Dot” card to pay for the mem- ber’s outstanding electric bill. The Green-Dot Prepaid essentially works like a Pay-Payl account;


once the card is purchased it can be accessed with a PIN number, and funds can be transferred or debited to an account. When the scam fi rst occurred in Oklahoma in 2012, local media channels reported the Green-Dot Prepaid Purchase Card scam targeted utility customers, mostly of Hispanic or Latino ethnicity. However, Green-Dot scams are not the only type of phone scams


co-op members have experienced. Arkansas Valley Electric Cooperative members have received calls from individuals asking for the members’ credit card information. One co-op member, in particu- lar, gave the caller his credit card information and was then asked by the caller to meet him at a nearby convenience store. The co-op mem- ber became suspicious at that point and decided to call the coopera- tive only to fi nd out he had been the victim of a phone scam. OAEC encourages local cooperative members to be informed about


these scams. It’s very unlikely your co-op will call a member to re- quest payment over the phone. If you receive a similar call, we urge you to contact your local electric cooperative immediately.
