Notice to Members - Special Meeting June 27, 9 am, at Portland

Notice to Members of HomeWorks Tri-County Electric Cooperative

A Special Member Meeting is set for June 27, 9 a.m., at the Cooperative’s Portland office

The board of directors will consider several changes to the cooperative’s rates and tariffs at its meeting on June 27, 2016, to be held at the cooperative office at 7973 Grand River Avenue, Portland, MI. The meeting will start at 9 a.m. and is open to all members of HomeWorks Tri-County Electric Cooperative.

Manager's Message: Democracy Depends on You

2016 is a great year for you to be part of a democracy.

Not the democracy that votes for seats in Lansing or Washington, D.C., or even in your township, city, or county, but a working democracy that you and your neighbors own - your electric cooperative!

In May each year, HomeWorks Tri-County staff brings the co-op to your neighborhood, with seven district member meetings where you can learn what's going on with YOUR electric utility.

Capital Credits

What are capital credits? They're your ownership of your electric cooperative. Here's more information, from the May issue of Michigan Country Lines:

HomeWorks Tri-County Electric Cooperative member-owners see the benefits of cooperative principle #3 (Members’ Economic Participation) on your May energy bills.

Offices closed New Year's Day

We wish you all a safe and joyous holiday season. Our offices will be closed on Tuesday, New Year's Day, to allow our employees to celebrate the New Year with their families.

We will re-open at 8 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 2, for normal business hours.

Remember, you can pay anytime by phone, by calling 1-877-999-3395. You can also log into eBill to view your account or pay by check, credit card, or debit card.

Manager's Message: Spare Change Adds Up To $2 Million

One of the great things about electric cooperatives is how we work together.

A great example is our mutual aid system. We get help from our sister co-ops when we have many outages after a storm, and in turn we send crews to help out when we’re needed elsewhere. We sent linemen up north to Presque Isle Electric & Gas in Onaway after we finished repairs this past Christmas, for instance, and we’ve been able to call on Great Lakes Energy and Midwest Energy for crews and equipment during past storms.

Manager's Message: Directors - and Your Vote - Make a Difference

As an electric cooperative, HomeWorks Tri-County is guided by an elected board of directors who represent its members’ best interest when considering decisions and policies. A director’s decisions will impact issues, such as service rates, rights of way and work plans. This position holds great responsibility and requires men and women who understand their community’s needs and serve the cooperative members’ best interest.  

Manager's Message: The People At The Other End Of The Power Line

One of the great things about a cooperative is that we are owned by, and operated for the benefit of, the people we serve: you and your neighbors.

That means we work hard every day to make sure that your energy is safe and reliable, that the rates you pay for that energy are fair and competitive, and that the service you receive is personal, courteous, and knowledgeable.

We also try to treat you like an individual, a person with a name and address, rather than as an account number.
