Thank you to all of the OTEC workers and staff for all the hard work done everyday in keeping our electricity running in our beautiful community. It is greatly appreciated.

Thank you for the excellent service after the big storm. Lightening hit our power pole and knocked out power. I called your office around 7 a.m. and got a real person, friendly and efficient. OTEC crews were on the scene a couple of hours later and by lunchtime we had a new pole and electricity. All very good.

Good work OTEC, for everything you've done during the wildfires: keeping the lights on, turning power on and off as needed for firefighters and fire victims, and everything else you've had to do during a very challenging fire season.

I wish to convey my sincere appreciation to the OTEC crews of the Burns, John Day, Baker City and La Grande districts for their heroic endeavors in handling the challenges brought about by the tragic fires in this region. Their knowledge, skills and dedication to preserving our resources is greatly appreciated. I also want to thank Werner Buehler, CEO of OTEC, Ned Ratterman, Lara Petitclerc-Stokes, and Pat McCluskey and their respective staff for their tireless dedication and organization of responses to meet this need. To the citizens of the affected burn areas who have lost homes and property, please accept my heartfelt condolences for your losses.

When a power pole was hit in our driveway, snapping it off, all power lines fell into the yard of myself and my neighbor. OTEC was alerted and came very promptly, even though it was a Sunday night and nearly dark. They worked quickly and efficiently. They lifted the pole, which raised the power lines, and secured it for the night so that my neighbor and I did not have to go without power. In the morning, they returned and began to work. The entire crews work was diligent, efficient and all kept busy until the job was completed. The site was left in great condition. I do not know the names of the crew members. But, I hope you will praise them and thank each one for a job well done.
