Coop News from EnerStar

Redesigned with you in mind

EnerStar Electric Cooperative recently debuted a new billing statement design. To better serve our member-owners, the new design needed to be an easy to read design yet one that offers information to help the consumer make smart energy decisions.

Cooperatives see the future

Dramatic changes are transforming all aspects of the energy industry. Interest in renewable energy is at an all-time high, and ultimately consumers want greater control over their energy use and payment methods. The prevalence of smart-phone apps and “smart” technology for the home is increasing, and consumers and businesses are showing greater interest in electric vehicles. There’s no denying it: electric utilities will have to make changes to the way they provide energy to accommodate these trends.

Board training – In the field

The EnerStar board of directors are members just like you who were elected to serve the membership. They all have “day jobs” and do not work for an electric utility. To help them better understand it all, our statewide and national associations offer training and education to help directors easily wear their “co-op hat.”
