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.

Shaping Our Youth for Their Future

Nolin RECC Annual Meeting—Something for Everyone

The 78th Nolin RECC annual meeting had all the ingredients needed for a successful evening. The weather was good, the geothermal cooling systems at John Hardin High School were operating with perfection, and the event was well-attended with 1,265 registered members.

NO Pokémon at Electrical Substations

With Pokémon Go players on the rise, Nolin Rural Electric Cooperative Corporation (Nolin RECC) is concerned about people looking to catch the virtual characters around high voltage equipment.

“Power lines and electrical substations are no place to be playing around,” says Nolin RECC Communications Manager Patsy Whitehead. “The consequences of getting close to an electrical substation are electrocution or death – it’s not a game, it’s a reality. And definitely no one will be going home a winner or with more Pokémon characters.”

Celebrating Our Powerful Independence

Each July 4, we commemorate the birth of our nation. It is a time to remember how citizens living in 13 colonial states took part in winning American independence and established the United States of America.

Members of Nolin RECC have double the reason to celebrate independence this year. It was 75 years ago this July 7 that ordinary Kentuckians representing 3 electric cooperatives banded together to make rural electricity more accessible, reliable, and affordable for their members.

The Annual Report

The Guiding Principles
 

Nolin RECC is proud to be unique.

We are unique in that we are a cooperative business, owned by you, working for you, and guided by The Seven Cooperative Principles, which 171 years after they were first written, are still relevant today.

This annual report highlights the achievements your cooperative has made by adhering to these principles.

For instance, we rely on the principle of Cooperation Among Cooperatives as we work with our partner co-ops to deal with new EPA regulations.

Our Goal: Make Your Life Better

When electric lines first extended to country homes and farms, they became the great equalizer. Finally, rural people had the same electrified conveniences and benefits that city residents had enjoyed for decades.

These days, electricity is not a luxury but a necessity to power today's lifestyles. We take for granted that the lights will always come on. Electricity is our lifeline - lighting our homes and businesses at the touch of a switch, powering classroom computers to educate tomorrow's leaders, and energizing life-saving medical equipment.

The power of Operation Round-Up

It started as a simple idea 27 years ago at one co-op in South Carolina. Just round up the co-op member's electric bill to the next dollar, and then use it to do good work in your community. Today, hundreds of electric co-ops throughout the country, including Nolin RECC, use this idea to help members and organizations close to home.
