Manager’s Message: Co-op Bylaws Provide Structure, Continuity

Spring could be considered “co-op season,” because it’s the time of year when several cooperative principles come to life here at HomeWorks Tri-County Electric.

With 2012’s financial statements closed and audited, your board of directors will authorize allocation of the margins, or profits, back to your membership account, based on your energy purchases during the year.

Special Member Meeting set for April 22

Notice to Members of HomeWorks Tri-County Electric Cooperative

A Special Member Meeting is set for 9 a.m. April 22, at the cooperative’s Blanchard office

The board of directors will consider changes to the cooperative’s rates and tariffs at its meeting on April 22, 2013, to be held at the cooperative office at 3681 Costabella Avenue, Blanchard, MI. The meeting will start at 9 a.m. and is open to all members of HomeWorks Tri-County Electric Cooperative.

Manager’s Message: Will you help your neighbor?

Last year I asked if you were helping us build a better world.

This year my question is similar: Are you making a difference?

This month marks the 20th anniversary of the Tri-County Electric People Fund helping out our neighbors here in mid-Michigan.

By rounding up your monthly energy bill, you allow us to donate your spare change – averaging just 50 cents per month – to the People Fund. In turn, a volunteer board of seven cooperative members reviews requests for help from individuals and organizations.

Jan. 15 is deadline for Touchstone Energy Classroom Technology Grants

HomeWorks Tri-County Electric Cooperative is accepting applications for our 2013 Touchstone Energy Classroom Technology Grants Program. Schools that serve children of HomeWorks Tri-County Electric members can receive a grant of up to $2,500 to fund innovative programs, particularly those involving technology or equipment that enrich students’ education.

Manager's Message: The Value of Electricity

At HomeWorks Tri-County, we have three top priorities: provide you safe, reliable access to electric power; offer that service as affordably as possible; and do both of those things in a fiscally and environmentally responsible fashion.

You’ve told us, at meetings and in surveys, that you value these same priorities. That’s why they are the foundation of our strategic plan, our work plans, and our daily activities.

What else does “value” mean to you, when it comes to electricity?
