ATTENTION: There is a new scam targeting OUC customers. The scam uses a computer-generated call that looks and sounds like it is from OUC and tells customers they will be disconnected if an immediate payment is not made. REMEMBER: OUC has legitimate ways for you to interact with us. Your OUC bill or online account has the information you need to find your balance. You can make a payment online or visit www.ouc.com/waystopay for other options including third-party payment locations. If you receive a call requesting payment, the safest thing to do is to hang up and call 407-423-9018 (Orlando/Orange County) or 407-957-7373 (St. Cloud/Osceola County). An OUC representative will NEVER take your credit card or banking information over the phone and will NEVER instruct you to use a pre-paid card for payment.

ATENCIÓN: Hay una nueva estafa que apunta a los clientes OUC. La estafa utiliza una llamada generada por ordenador que se ve y suena como si fuera de OUC y le dice a los clientes que serán desconectados si no se realiza un pago inmediato. Recuerde: OUC tiene maneras legítimas para que usted interactúe con nosotros. Su factura OUC o cuenta en línea tiene la información que necesita para encontrar su saldo. Usted puede hacer un pago en línea o visite www.ouc.com/waystopay para otras opciones incluyendo ubicaciones de pagos de terceros. Si recibe una llamada solicitando el pago, lo más seguro es colgar y llamar 407-423-9018 (Orlando/Orange County) o 407-957-7373 (St. Cloud/Osceola County). Un representante de OUC nunca tomará su tarjeta de crédito o información bancaria por teléfono y nunca le indicará que use una tarjeta pre-pagada para el pago.

OUC Team Takes Top Honors at Lineman Competition

Mar 28, 2012

ORLANDO – Linemen from OUC – The Reliable One won First Place Overall in the 12th annual Florida Lineman Competition in Gainesville on Saturday, March 30. Hosted by the Florida Municipal Electric Association, the contest featured more than 100 linemen from 16 municipal utilities throughout the state. OUC’s winning team included Line Technicians James Alexander, Richard Boley and Chris Hosier. The team placed either first or second in four different events to win the title.

“These are the best of the best and they truly represent the dedication it takes to have not just the physical endurance to do this, but also the mental resolve to perform these difficult tasks quickly and safely,” OUC Energy Delivery Vice President Clint Bullock said

The Florida Lineman Competition is a venue for linemen to practice and showcase their skills to friends and families. The event is similar to a rodeo and is based on tasks that linemen must know how to do — like changing insulators and fuses atop electric utility poles. For example, in the “hurt-man event,” participants must rescue a 180-pound mannequin from the top of a utility pole to demonstrate skills in safely helping an injured co-worker.  OUC’s top team finished first in the 88-kilovolt (kV) Insulator Change and second in the Mystery Event (Wire Tie In), Vertical Hurtman Rescue and Journeyman Cut-Out and Arrestor events.

“We take our job seriously and many of us consider what we do a public service,” said Lead Line Technician Chris Wohlfart, a 25-year lineman and former competitor who served as a judge this past weekend. “We all have strong bonds because we’re united by our skills, hard work and dedication – and this competition showcases our abilities.”
