Safety Is Top Priority For CEC
Community Electric takes a great deal of pride in providing an extremely high level of reliability, with safety being the number one priority. The Cooperative’s mission, “to safely provide our members exceptional, courteous, and reliable services, at a competitive cost,” is not a statement taken lightly.
To insure the safety of its members and the public, Community Electric Cooperative has a continuing program for pole maintenance. Southside Utility Maintenance, Inc., provides an ongoing inspection routine for the Cooperative to determine pole performance and identify poles that should be treated or replaced. Poles that are determined to be rotten and condemned are immediately scheduled for replacement.
As always, Community Electric Cooperative encourages its members to report any unsafe situation so that repairs may be made in order to avoid an outage and prevent possible injury.
Community Electric Cooperative, headquartered in Windsor, serves over 10,000 consumer-members in the counties of Isle of Wight, Southampton, Sussex and Surry, and the City of Suffolk. The cooperative purchases its wholesale power from Old Dominion Electric Cooperative and the Southeastern Power Administration.
