Building on the fundamental cooperative principle of making a significant and positive impact in the communities we serve.
While the primary mission of the electric cooperative is to deliver reliable, inexpensive power, its secondary mission has always been to make a difference in the communities it serves.
In the 1930s it was going from community to community teaching farmers and homeowners how to use electrical appliances. In the 1950s we began working with local high schools in the Washington Youth Tour program. In the 1970s it was developing energy conservation programs.
Recently the cooperative has focused attention on the largest community-impact effort it has ever undertaken with the formation of SharingChange. SharingChange is an avenue through which the cooperative assists worthy community causes and families in emergency situations.
Concern for community - another way the electric cooperative distinguishes itself as something more than just a power company.
Positive community impact is a fundamental goal of Middle Tennessee Electric. The cooperative's Community Relations Coordinator works with the primary focus of seeing that goal realized. From administering MTEMC's educational programs to coordinating SharingChange Inc. grant requests, the Community Relations Coordinator is here to serve the cooperative's members.
