EnerStar President and CEO Mike Clark has announced that Jake Keys received Journeyman Lineman status on August 16, 2017. Jake began the 4-year Apprentice Lineman step program in 2013, after 3 years in Enerstar’s Forestry department. Jake attended Lincoln Land Community College’s Electrical Distribution Lineman School in Springfield. Congratulations Jake!
For over 50 years, the electric and telephone cooperatives of Illinois have given tomorrow’s leaders the opportunity to learn from today’s public officials. And EnerStar is on the hunt to for two outstanding students to represent our cooperative at the Youth Tour this year.
For the sixth year, EnerStar Electric Cooperative is pleased to announce this year’s recipients of the CoBank Sharing Success Grant. Mill Creek Park, a part of the Clark County Park District, and the Oakland Food Pantry in Oakland will split the $10,000 donation.
EnerStar matched local dollars with grant funds from CoBank which operates a $3 million charitable fund designed to benefit cooperatives and the charitable groups they support throughout rural America.
Did you know that our electric cooperative was founded in 1938 by the Edgar County Farm Bureau? Yep! That’s right! And we are proud of our ag roots. That is why we strongly support 4-H and the local county extension offices each year. Here are just a few fun photos from this summer’s 4-H fairs. We appreciate the hard work of all the participants, but we have a soft spot for those electricity projects.
