Rate Increase Topic at Annual Meeting

Heavy rain and fierce winds welcomed the 79th Nolin RECC annual meeting just about the time member registration opened at John Hardin High School on June 23. Although attendance was down, we still registered 705 members and the meeting was a success with an estimated crowd of 2,500.

The Path to Efficiency Independence

While fireworks and Independence Day parades are synonymous with the Fourth of July, no such fanfare comes to mind when discussing energy efficiency. Perhaps it should. If you think about it, energy efficiency not only benefits individuals and families, but the country as a whole. Energy efficiency, combined with energy conservation and advances in technology in the utility industry, ultimately helps our country on a path toward greater energy independence. And that’s worth celebrating.
 

Plug into safety

This month, I’d like to take a moment to reflect on the importance of safety. May is Electrical Safety Month, and your safety as well as the safety of your co-op employees is a top priority at Nolin. We all depend on electricity to power our lives, but accidents can happen when electricity is improperly used.

Holding the Line on Electricity Costs

No one likes to hear the words “rate increase.” But the fact is, everything Nolin buys and uses to bring clean, safe, affordable, and reliable electricity to your home, farm, or business has gone up in price over the last 10 years. And unfortunately, history tells us the costs of goods and services will continue to rise.

The Costs of Providing Electricity

Electricity is still one of the best values for the money. This amazing and invisible service provides us with luxuries we have grown to rely on. It allows us to keep our homes warm during winter, cook a hot meal for our family, and keep up with the world through our electronic equipment. In a perfect world – which of course we all know does not exist – electricity would be included in the price of that new refrigerator or heating system.

Giving back is the co-op way

As some of you might know, cooperatives across the globe adhere to the same Seven Cooperative Principles that guide all of our decisions––from how we run the co-op, to how we engage with our local communities. Concern for Community is the seventh principle, and it is one that all employees of Nolin value year round. But during the holiday season, concern for community seems especially important.
 

Giving thanks for what makes us great

November is one of my favorite months of the year. And it’s not just about the turkey. From beginning to end, it’s a month for celebrating what makes our country great.

 

The Building Blocks of Co-ops

There are more than 29,000 cooperatives in the United States. Many co-ops from different sectors join together during National Co-op Month (October) to educate members in the community about the uniqueness of a cooperative. According to the latest data, more than 130 million people belong to a co-op in the U.S. alone, and co-ops employ more than 2 million Americans. So what does all this mean to you? It’s important to you, as a member of Nolin RECC, to realize how valuable your role is at the cooperative.
