Slam the door on scams

Avoid being fooled by utility company imposters. You may get a call saying your electric bill is past due. The caller ID says TCEC or Tri-County Electric and has the cooperative's actual phone number. If this happens to you, arm yourself with a few precautions.

TCEC trims trees in Guymon area

Trimming trees improves safety, reliability of your electricity

You may see a guy in a bucket with a chainsaw in your alley soon. Don’t be alarmed, he’s here to help.

Contractors for TCEC are trimming trees in the Guymon area for several weeks. These guys help keep your power on when the weather gets tough. Wind, ice and storms can bring branches down. When they fall or land on power lines, they’ll bring those down too. This often causes power outages and safety hazards. Trimming trees helps to lower the risk of that happening.
