Lamar Electric Cooperative
Outage Texting Now Available

Lamar Electric now has a new service to the membership, the ability to TEXT an electrical outage to us.  This service will provide an alternative to calling to report an outage.  The new service is faster and just as accurate as a phone call.  Almost 60% of Americans currently text. The percentage for our membership might be slightly less than that, but that percentage is increasing. For those who prefer to text, this new service is the perfect solution.

Here are the steps you need to follow to have the ability to text power outages:

  1. Call the Cooperative office to make sure we have your cell phone number(s) recorded in our system. This is very important. Simply texting to our main phone number WILL NOT work.
  2. After you have given the Cooperative your cell phone number(s), click here to register.
  3. The registration process is simple and takes less than two minutes.
  4. You will be given an outage “texting number.” Add this number to your contacts list on your cell phone so it’s ready when an outage occurs.

Now you are ready to text us in the event your power goes out. Please call the office during normal office hours, Monday - Friday 8:00 am to 5:00 pm, if you have any questions or comments.
