Reminder: Rate adjustment taking effect Jan. 1


recent cost of service study revealed a wide gap between OEC’s true fixed costs and our rates’ fixed costs. As a result, the service availability charge will increase from 60¢ to 75¢ per day, effective Jan. 1, 2017. “According to that same cost of service study, our service availability charge should be $53 per month,” said Patrick Grace, CEO. “Currently, that charge is $18. When the increase takes effect, it will be $22.50, which is still less than half what it should be.” WHAT ARE FIXED COSTS? Almost all of OEC’s operating costs are fixed. Whether a member uses 1 kilowatt hour (kWh) per month or 1,000 kWhs, the same amount of infrastructure and materials are needed to provide electricity. In addition, linemen, bucket trucks and maintenance dollars are needed on a daily basis to ensure that infrastructure operates reliably and efficiently, which can be difficult in unpredictable Oklahoma weather. These are all fixed costs for OEC and, again, are all needed no matter how many kilowatt hours our members use. “Electric consumers in general believe we should pay only for what we

use,” Grace continued. “It takes a very big investment to provide electricity, but our rates do not currently reflect that.” WILL PART OF THE RATE DECREASE? In order to keep the rate adjustment from being a rate increase, other areas of OEC’s residential and small commercial rates will see price decreases. First, April, November and December bills will be considered part of the lower winter rate (they are currently part of the shoulder rate). Second, usage on the winter rate in excess of 1,000 kWhs will be reduced from 6.5252¢ to 6¢ per kWh. “Lowering the per kWh rate in excess of 1,000 in the winter will be huge for all-electric homes,” said Grace. “Plus, all members could see savings as a result of their April, November and December bills being part of the winter rate.” It’s important to remember — like all products, goods and services — costs will continue to rise: production costs, delivery costs, materials and maintenance costs, etc. OEC continually evaluates all options and works hard to ensure members are paying a fair and reasonable price for their electricity.



Leadership Summit applications due Dec. 5


EC is searching for two bright high school sophomores, juniors or seniors to award $250 scholarships and a trip to the 2017 Leadership Summit. An energetic and motivating day-long leadership program, Leadership Summit helps students hone their leadership skills with both self-reflective and teambuilding exercises. The workshop is held in the atmospheric boathouse district in downtown Oklahoma City. Two students will be chosen to represent OEC and receive a $250 scholarship. At the conclusion of the training, the students, along with their parents, will be treated to after-summit activities and a chance to win an additional $1,000 scholarship.

APPLICATION REQUIREMENTS: • Students must submit a statement on their view of leadership, including skills they have and which they hope to improve upon, and what they hope to accomplish by attending this summit. • A resume must also be submitted, which lists students’ extracurricular activities, jobs, awards received and positions held. • Finally, a school teacher, administrator or community leader must provide a letter of recommendation for each applicant. • Applicants must live in or attend a school within OEC’s service territory.

Applications are due no later than Dec. 5 and can be found online at Only complete applications meeting all listed criteria will be considered. Applications postmarked or received in the office after Dec. 5 will not be accepted. Follow OEC’s youth and leadership outreach on Facebook (/YouthPrograms) or Snapchat (oec_learn).

OEC seeking high school juniors for 2017 Youth Tour contest


erhaps OEC’s best-known and most anticipated youth program, Youth Tour is a weeklong, all-expenses-paid educational trip to Washington, D.C. in June of each year. OEC annually sponsors four delegates — all juniors — from high schools within its service territory to attend Youth Tour. Students travel with the Oklahoma delegation (70+ students) to our nation’s capital where they tour historic sites and national landmarks, meet Oklahoma’s congressional delegation and more. Youth Tour has earned a reputation as “a trip of a lifetime” by former participants.

Oklahoma Electric Co-op News • December 2016

NEW FOR 2017 • • •


OEC has been sending students to Washington, D.C. on Youth Tour since 1964, and the contest continues to evolve. [1818134401] In addition to the four finalists chosen to attend Youth Tour in 2017, another four will be chosen to attend Rotary Youth Leadership Academy (RYLA) at Goddard Youth Camp near Sulphur. More information regarding this camp will be available soon.


The Youth Tour competition process is designed to reflect the realities of our society and its preference for dynamic, personal interactions. In today’s professional world, employers and thought leaders want to see presenters who make a connection with the audience while communicating a message. As such, students will be required to prepare a multimedia presentation.


Applicants must choose an energy related topic on which to present. Topics can range from “America’s energy future” to “alternative fuel sources” to “electricity education in schools.” The options are infinite.

NOT JUST AN ESSAY CONTEST • • • While there will always be a need for the well-researched and in-depth essay analysis, in this situation we want to see the student communicate a clear and insightful message using the visual tools most often used in public speaking. Applicants may utilize PowerPoint or Prezi* to create a 5-minute presentation on their chosen topic. While judges are interested in the students’ points of view, this is not an opinion piece.

Assertions are expected to be supported by research and evidence. Eight finalists will be chosen and must attend a half-day workshop with an expert on presentation organization and stage presence prior to the Youth Tour banquet. The workshop is scheduled for Saturday, Feb. 25, from 8:30 a.m. to noon. The Youth Tour banquet will be held Thursday, March 23, followed by the Youth Tour trip to D.C. (June 9-15, 2017) and the trip to RYLA (June 1923, 2017).


• High School Junior • Multimedia presentation, no longer than 5 minutes • Presentation must include: • an abstract giving a brief description of the topic and citing at least two credible supporting sources; • a printable version (.PDF, et al) of the presentation slides along with a script outline of planned presentation; and, • fully accessible links to the presentation. Applicants do not have to make their presentations public online, but they must be shareable.

*other platforms may be used with the prior approval of Tedder-Loffland. Youth Tour is part of OEC’s youth development initiative, L.E.A.R.N.: Leading, Educating, Advancing and Rewarding the Next generation. L.E.A.R.N. encompasses the catalog of youth programs OEC offers to students, teachers and schools in our service area.

• • • HOW TO ENTER • • • • Choose a topic. Choose an energy-related topic you are passionate about, but one on which you can speak succinctly and clearly. You will have only 5 minutes followed by a Q&A with the judges. • Create your visual presentation. Keep in mind your voice and intention. Do you want to persuade the audience to your views? Inspire them with the merits of your cause? Do you want to inform and teach them? • Complete the entry form. Before turning in your entry form, read the above information carefully and follow the directions fully. Address questions to Tory Tedder-Loffland at 217-6726 or • Email your entry form, abstract, a PDF and a link to your presentation to no later than Feb. 13 at noon. Materials may also be delivered to OEC’s office at 242 24th Ave. NW in Norman.
