5 Reasons We Love Serving our Members

5 Reasons We Love Serving our Members

1 - We love serving our members because without you, the co-op wouldn’t exist. Our purpose is to provide you with reliable, responsible and safe electricity. Simply put, Randolph Electric exists to serve you. That’s why we were formed in 1938 ––to bring power to our local area when for-profit utilities would not. For 85 years, we have consistently cared for our communities and the members who call them home. This February, we want to thank you for all these reasons below and more.

2 - You enable us to complete our mission by supporting our efforts to give back. A major part of our mission is to serve our community and look after the greater good. With your assistance, we’re able to help the most vulnerable members of our community through food and toy drives and programs like People Helping People that help local families pay their energy bills when times are tough.

3 - Members of our co-op also serve on the board of directors. They provide guidance for setting co-op priorities and helping make big decisions. Because our board members live in the area, they’re able to serve as the pulse of the larger community and identify immediate and long-term needs. The broader co-op membership provides helpful input through their vote on director elections and by weighing in on co-op and community issues.

4 - You help us get it right. REMC members are great about keeping us in the know. We do our best to avoid power outages, but Mother Nature can occasionally throw us a curveball; our members are quick to report any power disruptions and are patient as our crews work to safely restore power. We know outages are frustrating, and your support as we work through storms means so much to our employees. We also appreciate your feedback on co-op programs and services like our free home energy audits and our REVUP program. Your opinions are critical for the co-op’s success, and we thank you for that.

5 - You and other REMC members make up the community we serve ––and for us, it’s all about community. Our employees live and work here too and care about our community the same way you do. We’re invested and work to help it thrive. That’s why REMC donates to local charities, schools and scholarship funds. It’s also why we invest in economic development, and why you’ll see our employees volunteering at local schools and other community endeavors.

As a co-op, our mission is to enhance the quality of life in our community and look after its long-term interests. We love serving our members and our local community, and just like you, want to see it continue to thrive.
