Members remain without power in the Candlewood Lake area due to a car-pole accident. The majority of members will be restored in the next half hour, while others in the south end and those located on Co. Rd. 40, 61, and 100 are predicted to be restored in a window of four hours.

We appreciate your patience as our crews work safely and diligently to replace the damaged pole and wires.

October is National Co-op Month and all month long we are celebrating you. Co-ops are owned by it's members and we want you to take a moment and read the 7 cooperative principles. These principles are a key reason that America’s electric cooperatives operate differently from other electric utilities, putting the needs of their members first.

October is Fire Safety Month and today is National Home Fire Drill Day.
Take some time today to go over your home fire drill plans with your family as well as some preparations in the case that a fire were to ever happen on your property.
We of course hope that this is NEVER the case, but we want you to be safe and prepared.

DID YOU KNOW that Consolidated helped livestream a drive-up high school graduation this past May?

“We’re optimistic that the Class of 2021 will have a more traditional experience, but if that’s not possible, you can bet Consolidated will be running fiber through the parking lot again if our community needs us,” said Jarred Davis, Consolidated network supervisor.

You might call it a standby mode light, but we call it a phantom load warning! If you see a little glowing light on your electronics when you think they're otherwise "off," your devices are still pulling power and costing you hard-earned money!

It is nearing fireplace weather!
If you never use your fireplace, plug and seal the chimney flue.

If you do use the fireplace, install tempered glass doors and a heat-air exchange system that blows warmed air back into the room.

A study done by Electrical Safety First found that knock-off chargers used poor components and greatly increased the chance of electrical shock or fire.

Check your charger to make sure it is easy to plug in and contains a CE safety mark and brand logo. Also, check the instructions for safe use. Discard fraying cords or cords showing signs of wear.

It is a bit chilly today but there is still time to care for your trees before winter sets in! Put composted mulch under your tree now or early winter to help retain water and reduce temperature extremes in the soil. A thin layer of mulch will act like a blanket and give the tree's roots a little extra protection.

General information

As a non-profit cooperative, we are owned and controlled by the members we serve. Members have a voice in the operation and control of the cooperative through their elected Board of Trustees. With a corporate office near Mt. Gilead and a district office in Delaware, the Co-op is strategically located just north of Columbus, Ohio, along the Interstate 71 corridor. The majority of our members live in Morrow and Delaware counties. Approximately 50 percent live in Morrow County; 36 percent live in Delaware County; 6 percent live in Richland County; 5 percent live in Knox County; with the remainder living in Licking, Union, Franklin and Marion counties. We serve predominantly rural areas surrounding urban centers, with about 9.6 members per mile of line. We maintain nearly 2,000 miles of power lines and 16 substations. Originally incorporated in 1936 as Delaware Rural Electric Cooperative and Morrow Electric Cooperative, in 1996 we merged to form Consolidated Electric Cooperative, Inc. Consolidated Electric is one of 24 electric cooperatives in Ohio. Together, we own and operate a generation and transmission cooperative called Buckeye Power, Inc., which owns two of the three generating units in the Cardinal Generating Station located along the Ohio River near Steubenville, OH. These two coal-fired units provide 90% of the electricity required by all of the Cooperative customers in Ohio, in conjunction with a new natural gas-fired peaking generating unit in northwestern Ohio, which came online in 2002. We are a Touchstone Energy Cooperative, an alliance of more than 750 electric cooperatives across the nation meeting service excellence standards. Touchstone Energy Cooperatives pledge to operate with integrity, accountability, innovation, and a spirit of community awareness.

Has anyone ever had a problem with them saying they didn’t receive payment yet you have proof it was taken?
Is there an outage for Fiber/Internet?
Mr. Rusty Bailey is a Sheriff Deputy with Vernon Parish Sheriff Department. I am supposing these crews are part of the Rural Electrics' Reciprocal Emergency Services Agreement. These workers are making repairs to restore Power and Water (rural pumps) damaged during Hurricane Laura.
The hardworking Consolidated crews are STILL up, working hard to turn the lights back on for everybody. Long day, guys. Be safe! And thank you very much!
