Reason of review
Bad quality

I was recently informed by a trustworthy source that nearby PSO electric is 48 percent cheaper per kilowatt hour than Choctaw Electric.

At some point in the near future, I anticipate a federal class-action lawsuit to be filed in order to relieve the consumers of this criminal organization. There is no way on this planet that an electric provider in the same region as a competitor - be legally able to charge their customers 48% more per kilo-watt hour than the nearest competitor in the region; a competitor that the public has no ability to do business with due to the lack of electrical deregulation in Oklahoma. People of this area need to band together and step up the heat. And then, file a class-action lawsuit. Organize, meet, plan, take on legal representation of the highest order. That is one of the issues, here. The citizens under control of this criminal organization are peaceful and enjoy their sense of independence and freedom where they live. But there will be a boiling point, a rallying point, and that time is coming. Get ready for it.

Non regulated Utility Stickin it to the customers....

Update by user Jan 21, 2013

I apologize for the slow delay, it has been a very busy week with Holiday next week. I have researched our connection to Mr. Lxxxx, He was employed here for just a short time and is no longer an employee with Choctaw Electric Cooperative. I reviewed our policy for incoming and exiting practices from our company, we check out keys to incoming employees and also check back in on day of termination, both of these practices were followed in this case.

I have addressed the issue with department managers of lending or passing out of keys to non coop employees, This does not happen to our knowledge. We have no affiliation to Mr. Lowe so my hands are tied at this point on this particular issue. I feel that you bypassing the lock is the best idea to ensure them not unlocking the gate at their convenience. If we need in for outage or maintenance purposes we will have to cut around yours but we both understand that.

As far as installing a security light on the property next to you, yes we would be able to put one up with the owner’s consent, It is a flat rate of 7.99 per month. We do have an average billing for your convenience, we take the last 12 month of your billing and average it then bill you on the average each month therefore making it a much more consistent charge.

I believe the best route for your safety is to pursue the authorities and other task forces that you see appropriate for the situation. As for us i will keep an eye on your area to make sure nothing is out of ordinary from our standpoint.

If I can be of further assistance to you please don’t hesitate to contact me.

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 punk *** 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 minimal usage.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 tribal members are given reduced rates while the rest of us poor slobs foot the bill-Either that or these are some greedy sobs. "Ms. XXXXX,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. wrote: From: Choctaw Electric Cooperative Customer Service 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-R/XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX

I have spoken to my staking engineer, he is scheduling an appointment to assess the feasibility of rerouting the power line. He is going to send me the findings along with a cost estimate.

It is our responsibility to provide power to your location, which we have. Unless there is a safety issue It is hard for me to justify spending excess money to move the power line when you have a perfectly good source now. If we are able to move the line and once the engineer determines a location for the secondary line, it will be your responsibility to clear a right away.

You are charged only for your usage, which is monitored from your meter. As long as you don’t have anyone else attached to your side of the meter there is no way that someone is stealing electricity from you. As far a someone pirating the electricity from the adjacent property, even if they were, it would not affect the electricity you receive. I have checked the property to your south and there is no “pirating” at this time. When I receive the estimate I will send along to you and we can then work in a direction to remedy your concerns.

Mr.Drake-

I am contacting you regarding the routing of power lines to my property-The source/connection for my electricity appears to be via the vacant property next door.

There have been past issues with the theft of electricity by an occupant of the property that I bought prior to purchase-The individual-Robert" Rooster" Maple had run lines to the vacant house next door and according to what I was told by the owner of the property-Diane Franke that a 900.00 bill had been run up by Robert" Rooster" Maple before the problem was discovered.

Diane Franke lives in Oklahoma City and does not inhabit the property.She from what I understand only recently secured power to the property and began securing the property and the house-According to her and from what I have seen there has been an ongoing problem with various criminal elements breaking into the house.To date Diane Franke has taken little If any interested in bringing this matter under control.

My point is this-I am concerned that due to 1) Present and on going circumstances 2) The arrangement of power lines between the properties 3) The fact that my property is inhabited and has a source of electricity 4) The close proximity of Zachary/Cory Lowe/Former Choctaw Electric employee that once again theft of electricity is occuring-Zach Lowe was /is friends with the person responsible for the previous theft of electricty that occured from the property of Diane Franke and may have performed the work to hook the illegal connection up

This poses a threat to my personal safety as well as fostering drug related activity that can and does occur on the property-I may also inadvertently be paying for this pirated electricity-Something that I can ill afford right now.

In the interest of eliminating any issues/potential issues would it be possible to eliminate any connection between the adjacent property owned by Diane Franke? I want no association with this property or it's owner and dont want to be indirectly responsible for fostering criminal activity that continues to occur on this property.Please advise-

Individual that has been harrassing me since the day I loved onto this property IS STILL AN EMPLOYEE OF CHOCTAW ELECTRIC COOPERATIVE-He lives on adjacent property WITH HIS MOMMY AND DADDY-CHOCTAW ELECTRIC IS AWARE OF THE SNOOPING FROM THEIR EMPLOYEES BUT REFUSES TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT..

I am a female DISABLED VETERAN and This CHOCTAW ELECTRIC EMPLOYEE has SNOOPED AND TRESPASSED ON MY PROPERTY CONSTANTLY WITH HIS BUDDIES-He HANGS OUT IN THE WOODS NEXT TO MY FENCE AND CALLS ME A ***-When I have GOATS OUT HE SHOOTS OVER THEM IN AN ATTEMPT TO INTIMIDATE ME.He has HARRASED AND KILLED MY ANIMALS -He has followed me on at least two occasions when I have left my property.CHOCTAW ELECTRIC IS AWARE OF THIS *** AND THE SITUATION BUT REFUSES TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT.

Living without HEAT THIS WINTER so that I can afford security lights FOR MY SAFETY because OF THE HARASSMENT FROM THIS CHOCTAW ELECTRIC EMPLOYEE-CHOCTAW ELECTRIC IS OVERCHARGING ME ON MY BILL BECAUSE I MADE COMPLAINTS ABOUT THEIR SO CALLED EMPLOYEES...

There is no point in having any sort of audit Done-I am at minimum usage right now-Despite the cold weather I dont even run a space heater-CANT AFFORD HEAT and am freezing my ..... off.Sorry-Rates are still high-I shudder to think of what my bill would be If I had a residence and family.There is no reason why I should have a 130.00 bill..

What I would like is for xxxxxxx area Choctaw electric employees TO STAY OFF OF MY PROPERTY-Despite numerous contacts with the home office and management they still persist coming onto my property at odd hours at night WITHOUT consent.If there is to be ANY access it is to be via the front gate and ONLY in an emergency-None of this jumping the back fence like has been occurring-Signs are clearly posted on my property" POSTED/Private Property'-If the lock or chain on my from gate is cut by a Choctaw Electric Employee there needs to be documentation of Who,the reason why and when this was done. and I am to be permitted access/review of this documentation.

PLEASE note that the xxxxxx xxxxx ,Son of of adjacent property owner xxxx xxxxxx works for WFE and is still very much a Choctaw Electric Employee-Emergency or not-Under NO circumstances is xxxxxxxxx permitted on my property-EVER.I have been dealing with harrassment ,snooping and trespassing and invasion of privacy from him and various other individuals since moving to this property aprox 4 months ago-He has even gone so far as to follow me when I left my property on at least two occasions-This has been addressed/reported to OSBI as well as management at WFE in Anadarko-Local Sheriff has failed to take any firm action on this matter

Please be assured that If I find ANY ONE trespassing on my property-INCLUDING Choctaw Electric/WFE Employees in the Antlers area I WILL take appropriate measures to protect myself and my property.Enough is enough-Surely this MISCONDUCT is not permitted by Choctaw Electric company policy and I urge that this should be addressed AGAIN with personnel from the XXXXXX Ok branch office as well as WFE Employee xxxxxxx-Apparently any action by Choctaw Electric/WFE Management to date has fallen on deaf ears..

Thank you in advance for prompt and effective action in this matter.

xxxxxxx

xxxxx Ok
