Electric co-ops grow for the communities they serve

Graphic about how co-ops grow communitiesCooperatives come in all shapes and sizes, but they each have a common goal: to provide goods or services for the members of the co-op. Coastal Electric Cooperative’s priority is to provide affordable, reliable energy to our local communities. Because we are led by you, the members we serve, we can evolve to meet your needs.

This October, as we celebrate National Co-op Month, we’re focusing on the ways “Co-ops Grow” for their members.

Co-ops grow communities: Co-ops help communities grow by promoting economic empowerment, fostering community engagement and supporting the unique needs of co-op members. “Concern for Community” is one of our core principles—and being community-focused is essential to everything we do.

Co-ops grow together: Co-ops are all about cooperation, not competition. That’s why electric co-ops work together to share lessons learned, successful strategies and better ways to serve our members. We’re better when we grow together!

Co-ops grow tomorrow’s leaders: Electric co-ops serve as fer- tile ground for growing tomorrow’s leaders through a variety of youth engagement programs. Whether through school demonstrations, scholarships, community events or the Washington Youth Tour program, we’re committed to providing opportunities for local youth to learn and thrive in our community and beyond.

Co-ops grow for you: At Coastal Electric Cooperative, your satisfaction is our No. 1 goal. It’s why we were formed many years ago to fulfill a uniquely local purpose. We’ve come a long way since then, and your needs continue to evolve. That’s why we’ll never stop growing for you!
