Delegate Tyler Thanks Electric Cooperatives

The month of October is designated as Electric Cooperative Appreciation Month.  In the 75th District, I have worked with four Electric Cooperatives that provides electricity to over 30,000 residents. 

The four Electric Cooperatives are Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative managed by CEO, John Lee, Prince George Electric Cooperative managed by CEO, Mike Milandro, Community Electric Cooperative managed by CEO, Steven A. Harmon and Southside Electric Cooperative managed by CEO, Jeffrey S. Edwards.  My mother has been a customer of Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative for over 50 years and never has she lost her frozen foods due power outages from snow storms or hurricanes, this has made her a very happy customer.

I would like to thank each of the Electric Cooperatives for their expedient responses during electrical outages due to bad storms and hurricanes.  Each of these Electric Cooperatives are commended for providing quality services in keeping the cost of electricity affordable for their residents, additionally they are deeply involved in community services promoting job creation, revitalization projects and educational services.  The Electric Cooperative provides resources and essential information on energy conservation, legislative issues and assistance programs.

Thank you for your many years of dependable electrical service for the residents in the 75th District.
