(West Plains) – Howell-Oregon Electric Cooperative (HOEC) recently completed a major upgrade of service in a large area of Oregon County starting at the Junction of Y Highway and Highway 160 and all points south of there to Myrtle and then continuing east.
The system improvements made will ensure continued reliability of service to cooperative members in that area. The work began at approximately 8 AM on April 25 and was completed ahead of schedule by 3 PM. HOEC linemen and engineers, that included nearly 50 crewmen, concentrated efforts to complete the enormous project as safely and as quickly as possible.
HOEC would like to thank those members that were affected by this planned outage for the patience while the work was being completed.
