December 2021 was the hottest December in Texas since at least 1889, State Climatologist John Nielsen-Gammon told CBS News DFW.
Texas is known for sweltering hot summers, but January and February can also be downright frigid so Members can expect high electric bills too.
Whether it's buying energy ahead of time, training our operations crews or winterizing the fleet, CoServ starts preparing for cold weather long before the local television meteorologists issue their forecasts.
The average low temperature for November was 46.3 degrees. That’s 2.7 degrees cooler than last year. Just a few degrees difference led to a 44 percent increase in heating degree days, the metric used to calculate how much homeowners use their heater.
Warmer temperatures could translate to higher electric usage for CoServ Members because they had to use more air conditioning in October 2021 compared to the same period a year ago.
From initial system planning to installing the meter, here's the role engineers play as CoServ adds more than 1,000 meters a month
If you live in one of the new residential developments served by CoServ, you are a big reason why we are one of the fastest-growing electric cooperatives in the country.

Have you ever wondered how they are able to find the source of the outage so quickly? Ask some of CoServ’s long-time linemen and they remember the days when they had to “ride out the line” for miles to find the cause, following maps in an old red book they kept in the truck. Today, CoServ’s entire electrical infrastructure is connected to a SCADA (Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition) system that provides updates in real time to dispatchers working at the headquarters in Corinth. Think of it as a nervous system for CoServ’s power lines and other infrastructure.
“That’s what my job is all about, preventing outages. Trees do cause power outages plus they hide a lot of other things that cause power outages,” CoServ's Vegetation Management Coordinator Morgan Herd said. “You can’t see the insulators at the top and sometimes you can’t even see the wire."
With a heavy heart, we share the news about the passing of Brandon Sandmann, a beloved CoServ Employee. He passed away Wednesday.
