As of right now SEMO Electric Cooperative only has a few outages. Team SEMO will have an all employee zoom meeting this morning as we all work together to monitor the weather and continue to be prepared to restore outages as quickly and safely as possible. Part of keeping the lights on is keeping our facilities safe for Team SEMO to come to work. A big thank you to all of our crews and employees that worked throughout the night and will work all day. Praying that we all have a calm and peaceful day. As always, we appreciate your patience with us. Stay safe if you have to be out and about.
SEMO Electric Cooperative and GoSEMO fiber are prepared for the weather, and want to ensure you, our members/subscribers, are as well. We have linemen, techs and employees on standby in case of ice accumulation on lines and trees cause outages. As always, our team will continue to monitor.
Please get ready for this weather by preparing your vehicles, ensuring you have adequate food and water (if you are stuck at home) and protect your pipes, plants and pets. Consider reaching out to family members and neighbors who may need help preparing for the wintery weather.
than raise monthly costs for Internet, TV and phone services for 2022, the
GoSEMO fiber bundle discount will go away with bills due in Jan 2022. We
take billing increases seriously so it doesn’t’ make sense to give a discount
and raise rates. As our CEO Sean Vanslyke said inOctober’sRural Missouri, we have held prices
the same since we started offering services in February 2018. Now, the best way
to move forward is to remove the GoSEMO bundle discount (a $10 or $15 discount
if subscribers have two or three services). We plan to leave our internet and
telephone prices the same for 2023, but subscribers should expect a TV rate
increase in 2023.
Why? Because TV network costs are simply crazy as there is no local control and
they have a great deal of power over the marketplace. Streaming has become the
mainstream option. We
don’t like bad news, but we believe transparency is vital as our focus is to
make people’s lives better with electricity and broadband services.
Thank you for being part of the GoSEMO Fiber
family and for being a loyal subscriber.

SIKESTON, Mo. (KFVS) - A Heartland electric company is
seeing outages due people shooting birds.
SEMO Electric Cooperative are experiencing these broadband
outages because of doves being shot at while on utility lines in southeast
Ten occurrences have happened since the start of September
for this particular company.
Fiber optic cables have been riddled by bullets, causing
damages and outages.
We talked with SEMO Electric Cooperative Fiber Services
Manager Loyd Rice who says each incident costs around $10,000 to repair and
will interrupt services.
“The data that does flow, that could be e-911 telephone
services, that could be a work from home. This year especially, a student that
needs to be home doing homework. Those outages again range from about four to
our longest one, about 10 hours,” said Loyd.
He said these repairs can be costly on crews and customers.
“It’s actual welding of glass to splice these back together,
very time consuming, very costly equipment,” Rice said. “So the nature of your
outage for what seems like a real innocent, ‘hey I’m going to shoot the bird
off the line’, becomes very costly to the member cooperative.”
Rice hopes people spread the word about this issue before it
causes more interruptions.
“We really have to start getting the message out because as
our service territory continues to grow, what has become a few thousand is
going to be an even bigger impact this time next year,” said Loyd.
The Missouri Department of Conservation says dove season
runs until November 29th this year.
