Our Commitment To Reliability


Last month, we focused on our commitment to affordably and how your member-owned electric cooperative has some of the lowest electricity rates in the entire country.

This month let’s unpack our commitment to delivering you 365/24/7 power. Your board of directors and employee team understand the crucial role electricity plays in our daily lives, and we strive to ensure a consistent and uninterrupted supply of power.

One of the ways we uphold our commitment to reliability is through routine maintenance such as tree trimming, pole replacements, and power line upgrades. Tree trimming is essential as it helps prevent branches and vegetation from interfering with power lines, reducing the risk of outages especially during storms. Regularly replacing poles and upgrading lines keeps our infrastructure strong, capable of handling environmental challenges and meeting growing energy demands.

Additionally, we are dedicated to harnessing the power of technology to enhance reliability. Through continuous innovation and investment, we leverage cutting-edge tools and systems that help us monitor and manage our electrical distribution network more efficiently. These technological advancements enable us to detect and address potential issues proactively, reducing the likelihood of unplanned outages and minimizing their impact when they do occur.

We also understand the importance of effective communication with our members and the community. We strive to provide timely and accurate information regarding storm related outages, planned maintenance activities, scheduled outages, and any other relevant updates. By keeping our members informed, we enable you to make necessary preparations and minimize any inconvenience caused by maintenance or unexpected events.

As your member-owned cooperative, our commitment to delivering safe, reliable electricity at the most affordable cost is always at the forefront of everything we do.
