Manager's Message: Celebrating National Lineman Appreciation Day

America’s electric cooperatives have designated the second Monday of April as National Lineman Appreciation Day.

On April 13, HomeWorks Tri-County Electric Cooperative will honor the hard working men who often work in challenging conditions to keep the lights on.

The full text of the resolution, which the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association (NRECA) Board adopted unanimously, follows:

Stebbins Appointed To Tri-County Electric Board of Directors

Jim Stebbins of Clarksville has been selected to represent District 2 on the HomeWorks Tri-County Electric Cooperative board of directors. He will serve for the remainder of the current term, left open by the passing of long-time director Wayne Swiler on Dec. 19.

Stebbins, a member of the cooperative since 1974, also says he plans to run for election to the board in May, seeking a full term which begins after the co-op’s Annual Meeting in August.

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.

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.
