First ever Luck of the Draw Scholarship winners announced

At the close of the annual meeting, three lucky high school seniors won $250 scholarships. “You don’t have to write an essay, you just have to be lucky and be children of EnerStar members,” Clark said. EnerStar’s Angela Griffin (left) is with Grace Burnside and Olivia Allison, both of Kansas, and Hannah Bowers of Paris, who were the winners of the first Luck of the Draw scholarships.

EnerStar Electric Cooperative youth participate in Youth Day

State Representative Chris Miller met with students representing EnerStar Electric Cooperative during the Illinois Electric and Telephone Cooperatives Youth Day in Springfield on Wednesday, April 3. Youth Day is designed to introduce young rural leaders to state government.

Members share opinions in recent satisfaction survey

As part of an effort to continually learn from members and look for areas of improvement, EnerStar Electric Cooperative recently participated in a member satisfaction survey which gathered feedback from 600 members.

The survey, conducted by an independent research firm and coordinated by the Association of Illinois Electric Cooperatives, measured satisfaction with EnerStar in core services and member care as well as gaining insight into member preferences for communication and program interest levels.

Capstone: Comparing our co-op to others

In 2018, EnerStar was one of about 40 cooperatives to participate in a national benchmarking initiative called CAPStone, which surveyed over 20,000-plus cooperative members. The CAPStone model uses specific questions to create a “Cooperative Attitude and Performance Score,” which allows cooperatives to compare performance. EnerStar’s first CAPS of 89 proved to be a strong score among participating cooperatives.

Electric rates

Answer to common survey questions/comments

Why are electricity rates higher in rural areas? What difference does it make how far the electricity travels to get to my home—shouldn’t it be the same price?
