May is designated National Electrical Safety Month. Each year 43,900 home fires result in 438 deaths, 1,430 injuries, and $1.47 billion in property losses.

Spring is a season of changing weather, which can bring some powerful storms. With it can come power outages and other problems.

Central Electric Cooperative (CEC) is proud to announce its 2017 Good Neighbor Scholarship winners. Selection was based on each candidate's merit for nonpaid service to community, church and school. Ten students of cooperative members will each receive a $2,000 scholarship to further their education.

Many members are considering purchasing portable emergency generators to provide enough power to meet essential needs during these rare occasions. 


Bill Betros of Central Electric Cooperative (CEC) has been promoted to assistant operations manager.
