Keeping equipment and vehicles upgraded allows employees to serve our members safely and efficiently. New programs and rebates offer members more discounts and ways to save energy. Community involvement and support has expanded greatly in the last few years. Together with Ohio’s Electric Cooperatives and Touchstone Energy we look forward to the progress we can make to better serve our members.
