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.

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.

Stay back and help us stay safe
