OCTOBER 2017 | VOLUME 68 ISSUE 10 | PUBLISHED FOR MEMBERS OF TRI-COUNTY ELECTRIC COOPERATIVE LIVEWIRE Save the Date: TCEC Town Halls CEO VIEW


National Co-op Month By Zac Perkins


As the nation’s 30,000 cooperatives celebrate National Co-op Month this October, it is a great time to take a look back – and a look forward.


Take the history of your electric co-op. TCEC was founded when neighbors worked together to bring electricity to our rural community. Big investor- owned power companies thought they couldn’t generate enough profit so they bypassed rural areas. Back then, there were frequent meetings among neighbors to discuss the formation of the cooperative. Once established, annual meetings were the “must attend” event of the year. The co-op – on behalf of the member-owners – committed to provide the community with electricity.


Fast forward to today – and tomorrow. TCEC currently serves 12,500 members. We have returned millions of dollars to our members since 1945.
