Member Telephone Survey Begins in November.
Your participation encouraged and appreciated.
Beginning in November and during the next few months, a random sampling of Ozark Electric Cooperative members will be receiving a telephone call asking them to answer a few questions about their cooperative. Ozark Electric will be sponsoring this telephone survey that is conducted every three years to measure the quality of service provided to you, our member.
This survey will ask several questions about your energy usage and your satisfaction with the cooperative. It should take approximately 15 minutes to answer all questions.
TSE Services will be the call center conducting the survey but will identify themselves as calling on behalf of the cooperative. The call center will be conducting calls Monday-Friday from 5 pm until 9 pm and on Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm.
Your participation will let Ozark Electric Cooperative know in which areas we are doing well and in what areas we can improve to provide you with better service.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us at any of our offices.
Fall Tree-planting Tips.
The fun, and not-so-fun, facts about trees.
Trees can be a lot of fun for kids...climbing trees, playing in the leaves in the fall. However, they can also become deadly for kids if limbs grow too close to power lines. Trees can also beautify our landscaping and provide shade during the hot summer months. We understand the value of trees and the pleasure they bring, but we also know how important receiving safe, reliable power is to your family.
Ozark Electric Cooperative’s right-of-way program focuses on two things: Safety and Reliability. Not many of us like to see our trees trimmed, and it can be especially hard to see trees removed, but we have to remove limbs growing too close to those trees your kids might be climbing and that could come down in a storm and cause the lights to go out. So we are asking for your help in keeping your kids safe and your power on.
Be proactive this fall when planting new trees and tall bushes. Make sure you plant them where their mature spread will not be within 20 feet of a power line. For placing trees, follow the tree-planting guide on our website here. Just select the menu item, “Safety Sense”, below then select “Right of Way”. Then perhaps we can avoid having to trim or remove them in the future.
