CECA Celebrates 75 Year History in Video

In 1938 a group of Comanche County Citizens, tired of being in the dark because the public power utilities could see no profit in extending service to them, banded together to form an electric cooperative that is now known as Comanche Electric Cooperative Association (CECA).

This year CECA celebrates its 75th Anniversary. We do so with a powerful purpose. “To power our communities and empower our members to improve the quality of their lives.”

CECA has a rich and powerful history and a promising and powerful future. Please join us this year as we celebrate our heritage and fulfill promises for the future.

    From the picture, it seems to be a group of school childen celebrating the “REA” that brought light to their schoolroom. I remember, first of all, when Geneva and Alton Mercer got electricity, before we had it at my house. There was a long cord hanging down from the ceiling, in the middle of the room. I remember that Alton went to town and bought a little fixture that screwed in the light bulb socket, and Geneva could put her ironing board up, plug her new electric iron into the little fixture in the socket and do all of her irorning. No more need to build a fire in the fireplace, heat your heavy “sad irons” on the stove and iron like that. What a godsend for families.
