For the sixth year, EnerStar Electric Cooperative is pleased to announce this year’s recipients of the CoBank Sharing Success Grant. Mill Creek Park, a part of the Clark County Park District, and the Oakland Food Pantry in Oakland will split the $10,000 donation.
EnerStar matched local dollars with grant funds from CoBank which operates a $3 million charitable fund designed to benefit cooperatives and the charitable groups they support throughout rural America.
Did you know that our electric cooperative was founded in 1938 by the Edgar County Farm Bureau? Yep! That’s right! And we are proud of our ag roots. That is why we strongly support 4-H and the local county extension offices each year. Here are just a few fun photos from this summer’s 4-H fairs. We appreciate the hard work of all the participants, but we have a soft spot for those electricity projects.
EnerStar and AirEvac Lifeteam have partnered to offer our residential members the opportunity to join the Air Evac Lifeteam Membership program through an affordable billing plan. Members have the option to choose the convenience of paying a monthly fee or an annual fee. Each plan is offered at a discounted rate through your Cooperative.
If you are walking through the co-op office and hear fingers tapping on the number keys or the sound of paper shooting out of a desktop calculator, you are most likely near one of the accounting office doors. Often working diligently under a deadline, these employees get everything done from processing account payables to gathering financial data that your board of directors will review at their month-end meeting.
