October is Co-op Month — a time to celebrate the unique spirit of electric cooperatives and the profound connections they forge. It is a great time to consider the important role your local electric cooperative plays in empowering your community — fostering opportunities, connecting you to the world and paving the path from today to a brighter tomorrow.
Co-ops connect energy and community: At the heart of the cooperative’s mission lies the commitment to power homes, schools, factories and businesses in your community. Our energy powers education, healthcare, commerce, connectivity and even transportation.
Co-ops connect people and opportunity: Cooperatives are working to create new opportunities for the people and places we serve. From creating jobs through economic development to inspiring students through our educational programs, electric co-ops connect individuals with opportunities they might not otherwise have.
Co-ops connect small towns and global knowledge: Thanks to our investments in broadband, electric cooperatives across Tennessee are connecting the communities we serve with the world. Co-ops bring the latest advancements in technology to the heart of our communities, ensuring that the benefits of progress are accessible to all.
Co-ops connect today and tomorrow: The world is changing rapidly, and Tennessee’s cooperatives are investing today to prepare for a brighter tomorrow. We’re building a robust and resilient electric grid to ensure that our communities are prepared for whatever lies ahead.
