Thank you





EnerStar Electric Cooperative would like to thank
the members who attended our 80th Annual Meeting of Members. 

We couldn’t do it without you!

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. More than 235 students representing 23 co-ops from across the state attended the event.  

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.

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?
