Students Represent EnerStar as Youth to Washington

Phillip Gorrell and Shelbie Kile, both of Marshall, represented EnerStar Electric Cooperative in Washington, D.C. during the annual “Youth to Washington” Tour, June 9-16. This event, sponsored by the electric and telephone cooperatives of Illinois since the late 1950s, is an introduction to our democratic form of government and cooperatives for rural youth. 

Capital Credits

Did you or a family member have electric service from EnerStar (formerly Edgar Electric) from the years of 1969 to 1976. If so, we may be looking for you. Follow this link (PDF) to see a list of former members we are trying to locate.

Getting to know your Member Services Department

When you call the co-op office and hear, “Thank you for ­calling EnerStar. How may I help you?” you are most likely talking to an employee in our Member Services Department. They work hard for our membership and ­really never know what the day will bring!

EnerStar lineworkers perform annual “pole top” rescue exercises

With blue skies above, it was a perfect day for EnerStar Electric’s line crews to buckle on fall-restraint equipment belts, dig into utility poles and begin their annual pole top rescue exercises.

Please make room for roadside crews

When the power goes out, so do crews from EnerStar Electric Cooperative. Lineworkers are the first to respond after an outage occurs, and they work tirelessly to restore power to the communities we serve.

If you’re traveling and see one of our crews on the side of the road, we kindly ask that you move over if possible and give them a little extra space to work. We deeply care about the safety of all, and this extra precaution ensures just that.
