POWER IN MEMBERSHIP





 

WHY DOES MEMBERSHIP MATTER?

You have a vote, a say, returned capital credits and more. We were organized nearly 80 years ago by neighbors in southeast Mississippi and still represent those same communities today. That is the cooperative difference and what makes us unique.

 

 

 

 

 

You are a member of one of the fastest growing electric cooperatives in the state and nation. Singing River Electric is the 45th largest out of more than 900 electric distribution co-ops nationwide and is one of more than 673 Touchstone Energy cooperatives in the United States.

Electric cooperative members share more than electricity. They share the same principles. That’s because electric co-ops are located in the communities they power and work hard to improve quality of life for all.

Additionally, electric co-ops are locally owned and operated by the very members they serve, which means the co-op is always looking out for you with a focus on member needs and local priorities. Member-ownership also guarantees every member has a voice in co-op business decisions. How the co-op is run is up to you.

As a not-for-profit entity, members know they can trust their electric co-op, because it was created to deliver on the promise of providing safe, reliable and affordable electricity to members – not to generate money for shareholders.

Community-friendly values mixed with the cooperative business model is what makes electric co-ops stronger and sets us apart from traditional, investor-owned power companies.
