Central Electric Cooperative, Parker, PA


Central Electric Cooperative (CEC) is warning members of a phone scam that is targeting its members. Scammers are calling members stating that a service order has been issued to disconnect their electric service.

Central Electric Cooperative (CEC) invites members to celebrate 81 years of service by attending its annual meeting Friday, Aug. 24, at Whitehall Camp & Conference Center in Emlenton. Members will elect cooperative board members from Armstrong and Butler counties, learn what is happening in the electric industry and enjoy great entertainment and food.
