Member Matters: Tree Trimming

By Matt Taylor
TCEC Manager of Maintenance

If you’re like me and enjoy having your lights on, there are instances where we’ll have to trim trees so your service is not interrupted.

Trimming trees also helps keep the general public safe. Trees contacting a power line can cause fires. They can also create “touch potential” where the tree is partially energized from the line. That’s why we warn kids not to climb trees near power lines.

Tree Trimming in Forgan and Turpin

The tree trimmers will be in Forgan and Turpin this week.

Members can call TCEC at 580.652.2418 if they have questions.

Helping those affected by the western Oklahoma wildfires

The western Oklahoma wildfires are close to home. TCEC sent two crews and released a contractor to assist Northwestern Electric Cooperative in Woodward with restoration efforts. Northwestern Electric released TCEC’s crews and the contractor this morning.

Oklahoma Emergency Management reported on April 19 that “more than 40 people in Dewey and Woodward counties have reported damages to their homes, outbuildings, vehicles or property.”

Member Matters Column: New construction

TCEC often receives member calls requesting construction to bring power to a new service location where there is no available meter. This can be as simple as adding a new meter installation on an existing pole. It can be as involved as acquiring easements and building new high voltage lines for miles. Members can expect the following when calling to request power to a new location.

Power line safety

TCEC recognizes electrical safety month with poster contest for kids

Accidentally making contact with a power line can be dangerous and in some cases, even deadly. We want to help our members stay safe around power lines.

In recognition of national electrical safety month in May, TCEC is holding a poster contest for children in grades 3rd through 6th throughout nineteen schools in its service territory. This year’s poster contest theme is ‘power line safety.’
