The Power Behind Your Power

By NFEC General Manager Scott Copeland

Investing in the Future

Solar energy has come a long way since 1830, when British astronomer John Herschel famously used a solar thermal collector box (a device that absorbs sunlight to collect heat) to cook food during an expedition to Africa. 

When Winter Temperatures Drop, Demand for Electricity and Energy Bills Rise

If your current NFEC electric bill looks a little higher than usual, most members can blame the cold weather in December and January. Many homes’ electric heating systems have been working overtime to maintain comfortable temperatures inside the home.

Average low temperatures in the area were 28 degrees in December and 23 degrees in January. In addition, there were 21 days in December and 24 days in January where the temperatures dipped below freezing.

Why is my electric usage higher in the winter?

Help NFEC Battle Copper Crime

Soaring metal prices have been blamed for an increase in thefts of copper and aluminum, primary components of electric distribution lines. Recent thefts of copper wire and equipment from electric utilities have been responsible for power outages, additional maintenance and expenses, diminished service reliability, and, in some cases, serious injury or death.

Billing Statements Getting New Look

Your electric bill has a new look! In our continuing efforts to improve our services, we’ll be debuting a redesigned billing statement this week. Be on the lookout for the new format and a detailed bill explanation. Anyone with questions may call an NFEC member representative at 580-928-3366.

Phone number for payments has changed

As part of our dedication to provide safe, secure service, NFEC has introduced a new toll-free phone number specifically for payments. Members can pay their bills over the phone with a debit card, credit card, or check by using our new Pay by Phone number, 844-759-3983. With this automated service, you enter your payment using the buttons on your phone’s keypad. You can also use the system to change your phone number.

Why is NFEC using the Pay by Phone system?

Webb Named Oklahoma YLC Delegate

Each year on the Rural Electric Youth Tour, cooperative delegates are given the opportunity to be selected for the prestigious NRECA Youth Leadership Council. One student from each state is selected to represent their state during the coming year. At the Oklahoma Youth Tour Banquet in June, Northfork Electric Youth Tour delegate Gabe Webb was named Oklahoma’s 2017 YLC representative.

“I’m so excited! I wanted this so bad!” an ecstatic Webb reacted upon finding out he had been chosen.
