As member-owners, we should all be proud of the history of The Energy Cooperative. Rural central Ohio had a need for electric, and strong leaders came together and made Licking Rural Electrification happen. Electricity and all the benefits that come with it changed and improved the lives of people in rural
communities. Electricity made homes more comfortable and lessened workloads with electric appliances. Electric lights made the evenings longer and more enjoyable, strengthening families. Power on farms made for prosperous changes and growth.
At The Energy Cooperative, we continue to want to make your lives better, and we set goals every year to ensure we do that. Over the years of this Cooperative’s service, we have brought you natural gas, propane, as well as reliable electric because you had a need for those products. As a company we continue to grow, expanding our services in areas that are also growing, such as Johnstown and New Albany. We now have over 64,000 members and serve 15 counties. We continue to empower you, our member-owners, with services and products that make your workloads lighter, allow you to expand your businesses, and make your homes warm, comfortable places in which to raise families and enjoy your friends.
Our values have not changed since Licking Rural Electrification lit up rural central Ohio. We have a solid foundation built on those values, but we keep our eyes on the future and on your needs as they continue to change. We hope that you share our pride in The Energy Cooperative’s history and its growth as we have been serving our member-owners since 1936.
