Downburst Winds Cause Transmission Line Trouble to Okeene Substation Before


H frame poles snapped.


Wednesday evening, August 10th, a large thunderstorm ended with a bang as winds over 70 miles per hour or greater caused a line feeding the Okeene substation to fail. The large 90 foot poles were snapped and the line came down. Some of the transmission line fell down on our 3 phase line. After getting lines clear, we were able to back feed all of our customers from other substations until the transmission line could be rebuilt. The good thing was that our new stronger and harder storm lines withstood the wind at the 40’ level.

Eighty years ago, folks in our area did not have electricity. The Kingfisher 1-A Project brought power to 446 members over 279 miles of line. It was a life changer to have electricity.


Just like us in the 1930’s, Project Energy Trails brings electricity to 360 plus families in two villages in Bolivia. It is a joint project of the OK and MO Cooperatives and the NRECA International Foundation.


16 Volunteers from OK and MO Co-ops arrived in Riberalta, Bolivia on August 1st. It was 96 F (and it’s winter in Bolivia). In 17 days, they brought power to families in the villages of Dos de Junio and El Torito. In all, 250 poles were set.

Wires were pulled and transform- ers hung. Houses were wired for 1 light bulb and 2 plugs in each room. Most houses have 2 rooms.
