Coop News from EnerStar

Power On: October is National Co-op Month

As an electric cooperative, our top priority is always to provide reliable, affordable energy to you, the member-owners we serve. Because we are a co-op, our mission is to enrich the lives of our members and serve the long-term interests of our local community––and this mission has never been more critical than in recent months.

Position changes to current EnerStar employees

This year has brought several position changes to current cooperative employees. 

EnerStar, Co-Bank with help from ECCF distribute grants to area schools

For the ninth consecutive year, EnerStar Electric Cooperative has been awarded the CoBank Sharing Success matching grant. The grant’s purpose is to help cooperatives support causes and organizations important to the communities they serve. Because of the additional financial burdens faced by schools due to COVID-19, this year’s recipients are the following schools: Paris Crestwood, Kansas, Oakland, Chrisman, Shiloh, Martinsville and Marshall.

When you make energy efficiency upgrades, you save energy, save money and help keep the planet squeaky clean. By our count, that makes for a win-win-win-win situation. Not too shabby, right? Another big positive is that sometimes those upgrades qualify for Power Moves rebates and incentives from EnerStar and our power supplier, Wabash Valley Power Alliance.

Member info: Contribution in Aid of Construction (CIAC)

As a not-for-profit electric distribution cooperative, EnerStar is owned by the members it serves. We strive to keep rates affordable while maintaining safe and reliable electric services for our member-owners. As a not-for-profit electric cooperative, those who receive electric service from the cooperative become members of the cooperative.

EnerStar lineworkers perform annual “pole top” rescue exercises

Safety training is a critical mission here at EnerStar Electric Cooperative. About a month ago, EnerStar’s line crews buckled up with their fall-restraint equipment belts, dug into utility poles and begin their annual pole top rescue exercises.

Providing more to our members and community

As a cooperative, EnerStar has a different “bottom line.” While our priority is always to provide reliable and safe energy, there is another equally important part of this equation. Your well-being and that of the larger community that we serve are of paramount concern.

Luck of Draw Scholarship

EnerStar Electric Cooperative is offering five lucky winners a $250 scholarship to be used toward their continuing education! The scholarship is open to college students who are co-op members or are dependents of EnerStar members. 

It’s easy to qualify for the scholarship.

EnerStar Crews - All in a day’s work

The heat of summer hasn’t slowed down the EnerStar crews. The co-op is busy rebuilding about 7.5 miles of 3-phase line just east of Kansas, IL.
