UEC Suspending Lobby Hours


Lobby hours at Umatilla Electric Cooperative offices in Hermiston and Boardman have been suspended until further notice due to the coronavirus outbreak.

In following Gov. Kate Brown’s executive order today, “Suspending our lobby hours is a prudent measure to protect the health of our members, employees and communities,” said Robert Echenrode, UEC general manager and CEO. “We will continue to provide timely service with email and phone calls, and through our drive-thru lanes, website, automated phone system, call center and mobile app.”
