Peak Alerts are not a notice of a power shortage, they are simply a load management effort used to reduce the demand for electricity and keep your cost of power as low as possible. By keeping high electrical demand levels to a minimum, our cooperative members capture the benefit, in the form of a lower cost of power.
Peak Alerts are likely to occur during June thru September, Monday – Friday from 3:00pm until 8:00pm on days that are extremely hot and humid. When you experience those severely extreme weather days, find small ways to lower your electricity such as - Raise your thermostat by just a few degrees in the summer. Turn off lights and appliances when you aren’t using them. Avoid using major appliances, such as dishwasher, washer and dryer from 3:00 – 8:00pm. Use outdoor grill to keep cooking heat outside.
By working together and using energy wisely will help to keep our costs down and the electric rates stable.
For 24/7 power outage reporting, please call (316) 542-3131
If you are experiencing a power outage, please check your breakers first. We also ask that you check to see if you have an display on your meter. If you do not have a display, you need to report the outage.
Board of Trustees Review Cost of Service Study Results
Sedgwick County Electric Cooperative (SCEC) has been working with Power System Engineering, Inc. (PSE) this past year on our cost of service study to determine when, how and why costs are incurred. The Board of Trustees and Management have reviewed PSE's findings and have determined a rate rebalancing for all rates is needed.
A public meeting was held on Monday, May 22, 2017 at the Sedgwick County Electric Cooperative office to review the proposed rates. The Board of Trustees approved these rates which will become effective May 1, 2018.
