People may wonder what makes electric co-ops different than other types of utilities. We thought we’d share a few of the things that do.
Because we’re a co-op, we operate differently than other utilities. Meeker Cooperative’s decisions are made locally, by directors who also live right here in our community. Everyone who pays to receive electricity from the Co-op is a member. When you pay your electric bill each month, your money stays here – to pay for the electricity used, or to make improvements to our local system to strengthen service reliability. The money you pay the Co-op doesn’t line the pockets of shareholders five states away. We’re a co-op, and we exist to provide a service to you, our local members.
We also schedule opportunities for you to attend co-op events, like our annual meeting, Member Appreciation, Coffee on the Co-op, and other events so we can hear from you. We conduct surveys to gather your feedback on Co-op programs and services so that we can plan and adjust for the future.
Our success lies in your satisfaction, which is why we offer these opportunities to engage and listen to what you have to say.
Because you’re part of an electric cooperative, you can count on our team to maintain local jobs, at-cost electricity, and first-class service, no matter what the economy––and supply chain issues–throw at us.
Meeker Cooperative strives to keep our costs as low as possible so you can save money. We want to help you maximize the value you can get from our services and offerings. For example, we can help you save on energy bills through our energy audit program and efficiency rebates.
If you want to receive important information from us, such as power outages, sign up for text messages here. Also, follow our Facebook page where we post several times a week. Of course, the Meeker Cooperative Pioneer newsletter is also a great way to stay informed. You can read current and past issues here.
Please know that you––the members of Meeker Cooperative––are at the heart of everything we do. Co-ops adhere to seven guiding cooperative principles that reflect core values of honesty, transparency, equity, inclusiveness, and service.
We exist to serve you and provide the quality, reliable, friendly service you expect and deserve. While we’ve grown over the years, we’re still driven by the same guiding principles to serve our community. We hope to see or hear from you soon. This co-op was created for you, the members. The power is in your hands.
