Get Ready For Annual Meeting

You likely already know of several good reasons to attend the annual meeting—to hear about the latest goings-on at San Patricio Electric Cooperative, get a barometer of its financial health, vote on co-op leadership and other business matters, and, if you’re lucky, win a door prize. Some of the meeting’s less tangible benefits may not have occurred to you, though.

Take Time to Reap a Safe Harvest

Harvest is upon us once again! It can be an exciting and exhausting time, the culmination of a season of hard work. However, the rush to harvest can also yield tragic outcomes. Each year, dozens of farm workers are killed and hundreds are injured in accidents involving power lines and electrical equipment.

Call SPEC to Trim Trees Near Power Lines

With spring upon us, we want to remind you to leave tree trimming near power lines to the professionals. Trees growing in power lines, or even near them, can become energized. If you were to come into contact with a tree that was touching a power line, by trimming, touching or climbing it, it could be hazardous or even fatal.
