Welcome to Central Electric Cooperative

News/Events

Central Electric Cooperative of Parker is excited to announce its 11th year of offering our Good Neighbor Scholarship program. Eligible candidates include adult members wishing to further their education, as well as currently enrolled college or trade school students and high school seniors. Ten scholarships of $2,000.00 each will be awarded in early May 2017. 

 

Eligibility requirements are as follows: 

Keeping pets comfortable at home this winter while you are away at work does not have to drive up your electric bill. Do not assume that pets want the same comfort level as the rest of the family. Most dogs and cats can be happy with a wider range of temperatures. An exception might be an older pet or one with medical issues.

Here are some tips to keep them cozy while conserving energy.

 

Electric space heaters are a good way to provide extra heat for rooms that seem to stay cold or for someone is always chilly. 

Please remember that they are single largest contributor to high winter electric bills and a leading cause of home fires. 

 

Cost Calculation 

All space heaters are rated in watts found on a tag located on the back of each unit. Most heaters are 1,500 watts.

Fred Terwilliger has been promoted to assistant general manager/chief operating officer for Central Electric Cooperative (CEC), located in Parker.

Fred holds a Bachelor of Science, Electrical Engineering degree from Grove City College.

After graduation, Fred began his career at CEC in 1989 as an assistant staking engineer. He progressed through the positions of system engineer, manager of engineering, and director of engineer and operations. 

In 2016, Central Electric Cooperative (CEC) continued providing safe, reliable electricity at a reasonable cost to its member-owners, was committed to the communities it serves, and dedicated to the Cooperative Difference.

The Christmas holiday means that children are home from school or college. It is a great time to teach about saving energy. Here are a few ideas from Central Electric Cooperative (CEC) to get you started.

 

Use Power Strips

Younger adults at home means more electronic device use (laptop computers, gaming systems, chargers, etc.). Encourage them to use power strips that can be turned off when devices are not in use.
