What’s the Value of Your Cooperative Membership?
As a member of Washington Electric Cooperative, you can rest assured that your cooperative team has the best interest of your family and community in mind. As a not-for-profit cooperative, we are proud to offer at-cost electricity to maintain stable rates for our members.
Here are three reasons why YOUR Washington Electric membership is valuable:
- Focused on power reliability
Washington Electric invests in upgrades and maintenance to our electric system, such as tree trimming for line clearance, and advanced substations, to provide reliable power to our members 24/7. In addition, Washington Electric relies on natural resources, like coal and natural gas, for power generation so power is there when you need it, no matter the season. We also balance renewables into our power generation mix, like solar and wind.
- Committed to local communities
As residents of the communities we serve, Washington Electric is committed to giving back to our neighbors and improving the quality of life here at home.
- Timely restoration efforts
Our lineworker crews work round-the-clock, in the challenging, beautiful terrain of southeast Ohio, to restore power when you need it most. Washington Electric also provides real-time outage notifications through SmartHub to keep you informed during outages.
We want to hear from you! We strive every day for service excellence and your opinion matters to us. As the general manager and CEO of Washington Electric, I personally invite you to take part in our member satisfaction survey, beginning May 30. If you receive a call or email that week asking you to take a survey on your satisfaction with being a Washington Electric member, rest assured it is legitimate and secure. We appreciate your time and feedback!
