Umatilla Electric Cooperative’s renovation of its headquarters on Elm Avenue in Hermiston is well under way.

Chervenell Construction is leading the renovation project for UEC. Since the lobby was officially transitioned to the modular location in April, construction crews have been active completing demolition, building temporary walls, and storing UEC equipment for future use once the expansion is finished.

Now and for the duration of the project, the former building is not accessible to the public. Members are asked to use the marked entrance/exit at the modular building and stay clear of construction areas.

For members that typically use the drive-thru service, a new car-side service has been made available. Upon arrival at the modular lobby, dial 541-564-4409 to discuss your transaction information with one of UEC’s representatives. While on the phone, the UEC employee will ask for identification information before sharing any account information. Once those details have been shared and the payment type and amount has been identified, the UEC representative will arrive at your vehicle to complete the transaction. Members are asked to remain in their vehicle.
