This Non regulated electric coop is part of a state wide consortium-Western Farmers Electric Cooperative.Since moving to SE Oklahoma aprox 4 months ago there have been numerous issues with this company 1) Local Company employees that snoop and trespass on the private property of customers-They insist upon being given access to the property but then make no effort what sover to control key custody-The son of an adjacent property owner worked for this utility and gave the key out to all of his buddies so that they could snoop.Other employees of Choctaw Electric also snoop and come on the property at all hours under the premise of ' Maintenance"...They are SNOOPING.To date have gotten NO ASSISTANCE ON THIS.## See email from manager posted below##Property is posted and any one coming on without consent will be shot-Simple as that.Utility has been put on notice to ONLY come on property during an outage-Otherwise STAY THE *** OUT.If the lock is cut on my gate it BETTER be for a good reason...
2) Rates are ridiculously high-I have 3 security lights and was told that they were flat rate priced-What they failed to mention is that extra added ' Surcharge every month.In addition, I am by myself in a small travel trailer-Very .My bill averages 130.00 a month-I shudder to think about what some one with a house and a family goes through-When I did own a home my electric bill no matter what time of year was always under 100./month.What I suspect is going on is that are given reduced rates while the rest of us poor slobs foot the bill-Either that or these are some greedy sobs.
Yard lights are a flat fee, we have a direct pass through from our provider of the power cost adjustment. It is charged to us and we therefore pass along actual cost rather than marking up charge to encompass the fluctuating costs. It is in my opinion the fairest way to structure the fees.
As far as Choctaw Electric employees trespassing on your property, the person you named is not an employee of ours therefore there is nothing more I can do to assist you on this matter. I suggest you call the appropriate authorities to remedy your problem.

Security Light PCA??? I was told that the fee for these security lights is FLAT RATE-WHY is this getting billed PCA????This is absurd-Kind of ironic that the majority of the reason that I am going through the extra expense of these security lights is the compromise to my safety that is posed by the intrusion Choctaw Electric Employees trespassing ON MY PROPERTY....Even after going through this expense they STILL are trespassing...Dont you think that Choctaw Electric is being GREEDY on this one? Please review and advise-
