Community Education Services

We provide free electrical safety demonstrations as a service to our communities. As your local electric cooperative, it’s important we share our expertise with others to keep our members and community safe around electricity.

Understand energy basics, how to identify hazards, and how to keep yourself and others safe around electricity and electrical equipment.

Safety is Our Cornerstone

Electricity is something every person uses every day – whether it’s at home, on the job, at school, or while commuting. Electricity is one of the most dangerous things we use every day.

Despite our constant use of electricity, it can be easy for some to underestimate the inherent safety risks. Our electrical safety demonstrations are a great tool to educate the public about electrical safety and energy basics.

Let us share our expertise and knowledge with you, your children, organizations, classrooms, or groups.
