Converting to a Smart Home

Depending on your age, your techie factor or perhaps your interests, you may or may not be excited at the prospect of installing smart devices in your home. Becoming more and more a part of our vocabulary, having a “smart home” or even a semi-smart one can help make the many tasks we do each day less time consuming and more fun.

Stay Safe While Cooking

There are many cooking-related conveniences designed to make life easier: crock pots, instant pots, air fryers, hot plates, electric skillets, toasters and toaster ovens, to name a few. In addition, probably the most obvious cooking mainstay in the kitchen that can be electric is the stove/cooktop.

Always Assume a Downed Power Line is Deadly

Overhead power lines carry thousands of volts of electricity. If a line is down, always assume it is energized and dangerous, even if the power is out in your area. Touching or getting near a live power line injures and kills.

John Marrs visits the White House

It’s not often that someone gets a behind-the-scenes tour of the White House, but one young Paris man was just that lucky! John Marrs, along with his parents Greg and Jenny Marrs, visited the nation’s capital on World Down Syndrome Day. The designated day promotes educational opportunities and workforce development for those with Down syndrome.

Stay back and help us stay safe

Working with electricity can be a dangerous job, especially for lineworkers. In fact, USA Today lists line repairers and installers among the most dangerous jobs in the U.S. That’s why for EnerStar Electric Cooperative, safety is the number one priority. This is not empty talk.
