As a member of The Energy Co-op, I am proud to be a part of an organization that invests in the local community. Each year when I renew my membership, I am given the opportunity to give the gift of membership to a small business or family in my community. The Energy Co-op offers a dues waiver program for anyone that might be experiencing financial constraints. Because there are no income requirements, members maintain dignity and can continue their membership, despite a difficult financial situation. I like that there is a tangible way that I can help members of my community join together to make sustainable energy choices.
