The power to change lives
Electric cooperatives are different from other utilities. Your locally owned electric co-op gives a lot back to the community. In fact, that’s a major part of its business plan. The Electric Cooperative Youth Tour has brought high school students to Washington, D.C., every June since the late 1950s. Electric cooperatives pick up the dime to send high school students to Washington because it’s important to the long-term prosperity of their communities for their leaders of tomorrow to learn about the political process. Youth Tour participants return to their hometowns stronger leaders with confidence that they can make a difference.
