Southern Pioneer Electric Postpones Open House

Southern Pioneer Electric’s concern for community extends to the health and welfare of each and every customer. Amid growing global concern over the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), Southern Pioneer Electric’s open house event, originally scheduled for March 27, has been postponed.

The decision was agreed upon by the senior staff of Southern Pioneer Electric in order to abide by the CDC’s recommendations on mitigating the spread of COVID-19. At this time, there is not an established date for the event.

“The safety and well-being of employees and our communities is at the forefront of all that we do,” said Anita Wendt, VP of Energy Services. “Our hope is to be proactive and to help do our part in mitigating any potential risk. We are proud to service communities across southern Kansas and thank our consumers for their understanding.”

Southern Pioneer Electric is also taking steps now to be prepared in the event there is a significant impact from the coronavirus in our communities. We are focused on maintaining a healthy workforce, and keeping key personnel — such as line workers and customer service representatives — available so that we can continue to provide the excellent service you expect from us.

Customers are encouraged to use payment options that will limit their contact with the office, such as paying their bill over the phone, online or paying via MoneyGram. For a full list of payment options, customers should visit southerpioneer.net/my-account.
