Deposit Refunds Go Unclaimed

Deposit Refunds Go Unclaimed

Lamar Electric Cooperative is attempting to locate former members who have not cashed refund checks issued in March 2012 through February 2015. The checks are for deposits, final bill refunds or membership fees.

“Many of these checks go unclaimed because members fail to provide us with a forwarding address. These checks are returned to us by the postal service,” said Director of Communications, Katie Morris. Lamar Electric is only allowed to hold funds for a certain amount of time, and is required by law to send unclaimed money to the state of Texas. Those who have not claimed their refund may need to file a claim with the state of Texas in order to receive their refund.  Should your name appear on the list or if you are the legal heir to the estate of an account, whose name is on the list, please contact Lamar Electric at 903-784-4303 to claim your refund.

A list of names can be found by clicking "read more" below.

Outage Updates

Information below is regarding the outage on March 17-19, 2016.

Due to the massive amount of broken poles and damage from the storms, Lamar Electric has brought in 3 contract companies to help install poles and restore power as well as a large crew from Wood County Electric Co-op, who are on the job replacing poles and picking up wire.

Several people have damage to their meter loop. Once an electrician had made those repairs, let us know so we can reconnect your meter loop.

With a windstorm of the magnitude that we have experienced, there are bound to be trees that have been damaged that will fall in the next few days, so have patience with us as we deal with those situations.

Due to the amount of rain and difficulty getting equipment to any of the broken poles, temporary repairs were done at several sites until the ground dries out to make permanent repairs.

Lamar Electric appreciates all of the patience with the membership as we have all worked through the difficulties of the storm together. Many members helped us moved trees out of the road and yards to allow access for repairs.

We made it through, members! Thank you for your prayers and encouragement towards our crews!
