Central Electric Cooperative, Parker, PA


Extremely high temperatures and humidity are predicted over the next couple days with temperatures exceeding 90 degrees. Central Electric Cooperative’s (CEC’s) seven county service territory – Allegheny, Armstrong, Butler, Clarion, Forest, Mercer, and Venango counties – is under a Heat Advisory from the National Weather Service in Pittsburgh from noon today, July 19 to Saturday, July 20 at 8 p.m. 

Please conserve power by turning off all non-essential electric items and set your air conditioner at a minimum of 78 degrees. Shift the use of items such a dehumidifiers, pool pumps, and electric appliances to hours outside of the peak period.

the following is an article from July's issue of Power Lines -- the member newsletter. 

Finding the Right Balance

by Matthew Boshaw, CEO & General Manager of Central Electric Cooperative

Come see the Touchstone Energy Hot Air Balloon at Balloon Fest 2019 to be held at Wolf’s Camping Resort, Knox PA, June 21 and 22.  

Each year, two of Central Electric Cooperative’s (CEC’s) eight board members are up for reelection. In some years, one or both elections are uncontested. In the past, we sent you an election ballot each year, regardless of how many candidates were running for each director seat. When elections have been unopposed, we have received frequent questions from the membership regarding the need or requirement to print and mail ballots.

With spring comes rain and we have certainly not been lacking rainfall recently. As we turn off the heat in our homes, we may find excess moisture is an issue.

Buying new appliances can go a couple of ways. It can be exciting to pick them out and decide which new bells and whistles you would like to have. It can also come after the failure of your current appliances and be forced upon you.

As part of Central Electric Cooperative's (CEC's) ongoing effort to improve system reliability, contracted pole inspection crews will be inspecting poles on circuits originating from Starr substation in Forest County, and Lucinda and Wolf's Corners substations in Clarion County. Pole inspections may occur out of the Beaver substation in Clarion County if funding permits. 

What is one of the hardest working, yet hidden, members of your household appliance team? Stoves and refrigerators receive your appreciation many times per day; but when was the last time you thought about the daily dedication of your water heater? The “Rodney Dangerfield” of appliances stands in a corner or is hidden in a closet and just doesn’t get any attention.
