How Our Broadband Project is Possible

1:30PM February 19, 2018

CDEC’s broadband service is made possible through communication upgrades to the co-op’s electric system and with the blessing of the co-op’s members. 

In 2016, CDEC’s membership voted in favor of a bylaw amendment to allow CDEC to work toward providing voluntary broadband internet and telecommunication services to customers. As a result, in 2017 CDEC began construction on a Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) system, a fiber-optic communication backbone connecting the co-op’s substations to a central command center at its Grants headquarters. The first phase of SCADA will connect the co-op’s Grants and Bluewater substations to the command center.

What are internet speeds? What do they mean? And, why are they important?

1:56PM January 30, 2018

By now, most, if not everyone is familiar with terms used to describe internet data packages.

Kilobytes (KB), megabytes (MB) and gigabytes (GB) are forms of digital storage. The more we have, the more we can download. Downloads are important when surfing the web, playing games and watch videos. Devices need a place to store all of this information.

How CDEC's new high-speed internet service came about

1:40PM September 19, 2017

Several years ago, some of our members asked us to explore the idea of providing high-speed internet to CDEC’s service area. So, we started to dig; and the deeper we dug, the more this idea made sense. Finally, in 2014, we decided to survey our membership and learned the need for high-speed internet was great and spanned across our service territory.
