COVID-19 Proud. These words express my feelings about my family, Team SEMO and our communities. This time in history is unprecedented and has changed our world – forever.
SEMO Electric Cooperative's Annual Meeting has been moved to July 2. Details are pending. Please mark your calendar. If the pandemic allows us to move forward, we will hold the meeting. Otherwise, we will adjust accordingly. Thank you.
As we work together to fight Coronavirus, our obligation to make lives better with juice and fiber is even more critical. A few weeks ago we hosted nine cooperatives for a Fiber Fly-in to discuss best practices. While travel is curtailed, we would be willing to talk and/or video conference with cooperatives about fiber-to-the-home projects. Please let us know. We will work together to stop the pandemic. We will continue to work together to make people’s lives better... Cooperation among Cooperatives.
A mentor of mine once told me that prayer should be our first action. Therefore, say a prayer for the pandemic to end soon.

3,200 GoSEMO Subscribers
Less than two years ago, SEMO Electric Cooperative started connecting homes, farms and businesses with GoSEMO Fiber – high-speed, fiber-fast Internet. Today, we have more than 3,200 subscribers connected. The reaction from first-time fiber Internet users is overwhelmingly positive: “It’s really fast!”
Welcome to 2020
As we enter a new year, I simply want to say thank you for being an engaged member-consumer of SEMO Electric Cooperative. If you are taking time to read, you are at least staying abreast of the cooperative’s activities. I want to say thank you to Team SEMO and SEMO Electric’s Board of Directors for a shared sense of purpose and commitment to make people’s lives better with safe, reliable and low-cost electricity and fiber-fast Internet. We aren’t perfect, but we try to work safe, keep things tidy, act prudent and take care of our member-consumers.
Winter Energy Bills
The 2020 edition of the Farmers' Almanac suggests a suspenseful start to January over the eastern half of the country. This may mean frequent freefalling precipitation as well as strong and gusty winds. And a cold winter can bring an equally cold reality: higher heat bills. Keep your costs and energy use as low as possible by acting now to avoid energy bill shock.Two big ideas: 1) Start with a heating system checkup. Keep your heating system clean and in tip-top working order.
