SHREVEPORT, La., Feb 25, 2020 – Thousands of elementary school students across Louisiana and Texas will participate in an interactive theater show highlighting electrical safety in March.
The National Theatre for Children will present The Safety Circus to more than 5,800 students at 20 elementary schools throughout Northwest Louisiana and East Texas March 9-20. Southwestern Electric Power Co. (SWEPCO) sponsors the performances that teach students where electricity is made, its uses, how to identify dangerous electrical situations and stay safe around electricity.
Have you heard of induction cooktops? Induction cooking is faster, easier and more efficient. This means a lower SWEPCO bill, while cooking your food faster and better.
Induction elements transfer electromagnetic energy through the glass surface directly to the pot, with no burners — and no wasted energy. It’s also a great safety feature. No heat is transferred from the induction elements – even when they’re on – until the proper pots and pans are placed on them, keeping you and your family safe.
The induction elements also use 30% less energy than electric coils and far less than gas burners, adding up to more cost savings. Induction cooking lets you control and maintain cooking temperatures easily and precisely, in no time at all. Just look, in the time it takes to boil water, you’ve learned about the benefits of induction cooking!

Fifty-four line workers from Southwestern Electric Power Company
(SWEPCO), an American Electric Power (NYSE: AEP) company, today arrived in
Sacramento, California, to assist Pacific Gas & Electric (PG&E) in
addressing power outages associated with the state’s ongoing high winds and
Employees from across SWEPCO’s territory –
including Northwest Arkansas, Southwest Arkansas, Northwest Louisiana, East
Texas and West Texas – will receive their work assignments and locations this
Due to ongoing high wind conditions, PG&E
power lines have been de-energized to prevent them from causing or contributing
to wildfires. Other power lines have been damaged by fire. SWEPCO linemen will
inspect and assess the condition of PG&E facilities to help determine which
are ready to be re-energized and which will require repairs.
“PG&E has a critical need for experienced line personnel to help them get a handle on the best and safest way to help address this emergency while their workers focus on outage recovery,” said Drew Seidel, SWEPCO Vice President for Distribution.
SWEPCO’s sister companies AEP Ohio, Indiana
Michigan Power and Public Service of Oklahoma also sent employees. The total
AEP employee count is 112.
There is no definitive timeframe for the AEP
personnel to remain in California, but they were told before leaving to prepare
for a stay of a week or more.

The day Cassundra Mayo discovered a lump in her left breast; it did not even cross her mind that it could be cancer.
“I was lying across my bed talking to my sister on the phone and said ‘Oh, there’s a little knot right there. Hmm, better get that checked out,’” said Mayo, who works in meter services at Southwestern Electric Power Co. (SWEPCO) in Shreveport.
SWEPCO recently presented Texarkana Aluminum with a $94,987.74 incentive check for an energy efficient lighting project at its aluminum mill in Texarkana, Texas.
The mill now boasts more LEDs (light-emitting diodes) with the goal eventually to have all LED lighting. LEDs have longer lifespans and lower maintenance costs compared to the mill’s previous and existing metal halide and T5 fluorescent lighting.
