EnerStar’s Annual Meeting of Members is just around the corner! Mark your calendars for Saturday, March 16.

Please do not use the Ballot Return Envelope for any purpose other than the return of your ­ballots.

The following points explain who can and cannot vote in the annual director election. By knowing these points, you can be assured your vote counts at the meeting.

Luck of the Draw Scholarship

At the upcoming EnerStar Electric Cooperative annual meeting on March 16, three lucky high school seniors could each win a $250 scholarship! It’s easy to qualify. Just come to the meeting with a parent and enter your name into the drawing by 9:15 a.m. and you could win! See below for all the details! 

Now is a great time to sign up for budget billing

Members wanting to eliminate the fluctuations of their monthly electric bills are encouraged to sign up for EnerStar’s Budget Billing program!

Accounts with at least 12 months of consumption history and with account balances paid in full are eligible.

Employee spotlights: The new faces at EnerStar

There were several employee retirements at EnerStar in November 2018, so that means we have a few new faces at our cooperative. Rest assured, they will still give you the great member experience that you have come to expect from your cooperative employees!

Planned Outage Notification Call List

If you depend on life support equipment, contact EnerStar

EnerStar does its best to keep the power on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and 365 days a year. Yet despite our best efforts, outages do occur. For most members, this is an inconvenience, but for those who depend on electricity to power life support equipment, an outage can present a real challenge. To protect yourself, be prepared by installing a generator or having some other form of backup plan.

Why we plan outages

Sometimes, you may hear that EnerStar will be having a “planned outage.” Ever wondered why? 

Occasionally, the equipment we use to bring power to your home needs to be repaired or replaced. When this happens, as a way to keep our crews and you safe, we plan a power interruption.
