Notice of Life Sustaining Equipment

 Notice of Life Sustaining Equipment

Notify Sam Houston Electric Cooperative of life sustaining equipment at your location. A letter detailing the equipment at your home is required from your doctor each year. The letter can be faxed to us at 936-328-1244.

When you notify us, we will enter the information in your account file. If your situation changes and the equipment is no longer needed, please notify Sam Houston EC so that we may keep your account file up-to-date. While this alert will notify us that a condition exists at the location, it will not prevent the account from being subject to disconnection for non-payment if the bill becomes delinquent.

It is important to note that during severe weather, widespread outages may occur and despite our best efforts, power could be out for extended periods. You may wish to purchase a portable electric generator for emergency use. Portable generators connected to household wiring must be installed with a transfer switch, which safely disconnects your home from our system, and engages your generator. This protects our line technicians as they work to restore power, and prevents costly damage to your generator once power is restored. Learn more about generators here.
