OPSU President Dave Bryant presents a plaque to Jack Perkins, chief executive officer of Tri-County Electric Cooperative, to express the University’s appreciation for their investment.

Tri-County Electric Cooperative will invest $3 million in electrical upgrades on the campus of Oklahoma Panhandle State University. It is the single largest private commitment in OPSU’s history.

Tri-County Electric plans to move all campus electrical lines underground, which will eliminate potential damage by ice, wind, lightning or other events. In addition, the removal of overhead lines will enhance the appearance of campus. Tri-County will also provide transformers and a meter for each building to allow OPSU to continue to monitor and address its energy usage.
