Help children stay safe around power lines

It’s time for fun in the sun as children are out of school and we are in the thick of summer. Warm weather brings a lot of children outside to play, and SMECO wants everyone to stay safe.

Electricity always tries to find the easiest path to ground. The best way to stay safe around overhead power lines is to never become that easiest path. Help your children understand these safety tips to keep themselves and their friends safe.

Stay Safe

Make bill paying easier

Month after month, it’s the same thing. Stacks of bills jammed into your mail box, hours spent paying bills; or worse, you get caught up in the busy day to day, forget to pay a bill and then end up with late notices and fees to pay. Set it and forget it with SMECO, and let bill payments manage themselves.
