USIC Contracted for 811 Locates
PKM Electric Cooperative has contracted USIC to do all of its 811 locates. Remember, before any digging project, such as planting trees this summer, you must call 811 at least two business days before digging to get utility lines marked and protect you from injury and expense. Safe digging is no accident. Visit www.call811.com for more information, or give us a call at PKM.
PKM has recently implemented a Phone Notification System (PNS) through CRC (Cooperative Response Center), our after-hours service. PNS will provide an efficient and inexpensive means of communicating with our membership for a variety of issues, including scheduled outages, when time allows and will also be used to contact members for past due bills.
Your team at PKM Electric Cooperative, Inc., is committed to serving you through any difficult time. As our region fights to prevent the spread of coronavirus our office doors will remain locked until further notice. We are still working and our dedication to service will not change.
Our staff is implementing a response plan that includes social distancing, frequent hand-washing, surface sanitizing and remaining home when ill. Electricity is a critical, 24/7 component of your everyday life. We will remain vigilant in monitoring the situation and keeping our workplace safe and functional so that you can do the same at your homes, farms and businesses. Thank you for your patience and understanding. If you have any questions about your electric service, please call 1-800-552-7366 or 218-745-4711.
