Welcome to REC

Hello and welcome to Northeast Oklahoma Electric Cooperative on-line! Whether you are speaking to us by phone, in person at either one of our office locations, or visiting us on-line, we hope our proud tradition of service shines through. Serving the needs of our membership is, and always has been, our number one priority. Thank you for your continued patronage.

scam alert!

A member called concerned they were a target of a scam.  A caller left a message stating they were from Northeast Oklahoma Electric.  The call concerned a problem with a bill and requested a return call as soon as possible.  The number left for the return call was in the 603 area code.  The member was right to call us.  This was a scam!

Please be alert to these attempts to steal your money.  We will never have you call a number other than 800-256-6405 or 918-256-6405.  If you answer a call and question whether it is a representative of Northeast, HANG UP immediately and call us at 800-256-6405.  Even if you do accidentally hang up on us, we will understand.  We do not want you to be a victim of this crime and want you to take precautions to keep your money safe.

These criminals are very convincing and very pushy.  They often threaten your service will be disconnected immediately if you do not give in to their demands.  Please share this message with your family, friends, and neighbors, and stress this message with those that may be vulnerable.


Safety during & after storms

No one knows electrical safety better than the experts who practice it every single day. Northeast Oklahoma Electric Cooperative encourages you to practice safety with these reminders – for during and after a summer storm:
Avoid wires and water — When lightning strikes a home during a storm, the electrical charge can surge through pipes and utility wires. That means you can get zapped if you’re touching water or any device that’s plugged in, whether it’s a landline phone or toaster.
Skip the makeshift shelter — During a storm, it's tempting to take cover under a picnic gazebo or golf cart, but in open-sided structures with no conductors to channel strikes, a bolt's path of least resistance to the ground could be you. On top of that, these structures raise your risk of a lightning strike because of their height. Keep moving toward suitable shelter.
