DS&O Electric Cooperative is an electric utility located in Solomon, Kansas. The Cooperative serves approximately 8,500 residential and commercial meters in some thirty communities spread throughout a nine county area in Central Kansas. Cooperative Building Solutions helped the DS&O Board and staff plan, design, and construct a new facility on the north edge of Solomon to replace old outdated facilities located in a flood plain in downtown Solomon. The new facility brought all the DS&O Electric Cooperative facilities, located in Solomon, onto one site and provides a safer, more efficient, and convenient operation. The 45,580 square foot facility includes added member service features such as a drive thru, community room and ample parking. Safety was improved by adding a complete site security system and added protection for members, employees, equipment with a tornado shelter, enclosed parking for all company service vehicles and state of the art technology equipment and facilities. Construction was completed in May 2014 and DS&O occupied the new facility in June.
