Electric co-ops, like TCEC, are a catalyst for good in their communities. Co-ops engage their consumer-members to do things that might otherwise be impossible or difficult, like more than 75 years ago when electric co-ops brought power to areas where other utilities did not find it economically feasible. Today, it means giving back to the community charitable groups, schools, and first responders. Members continue to receive safe, reliable, and affordable power through traditional and renewable resources, such as community solar and wind power. SmartHub is a free resource to members to manage their energy use and past usage. Co-op Connections saves members money locally and nationwide. Local businesses may participate in the Co-op Connections program at no charge.
Cooperatives exist to meet a need that was previously unmet in the community, and they are ever striving to anticipate and plan for the future needs of their consumer-members.
