From the Manager March 2018

Time flies when you are having fun, and I find new excitement every day I come in to Clay Electric Co-operative as your CEO. Coming into our new office building at 7784 Old Highway 50 in Flora still makes me smile. Especially when I think on how much value our new facility adds to your cooperative and how we were able to provide it for you with no increase in rates.

Author Anthony J. D’Angelo observed that, “Without a sense of caring, there can be no sense of community.”     

To a large degree, this reflects Clay Electric Co-operative’s philosophy toward our consumer-members and the broader service territory that we serve. As a co-op, we have a different “bottom line.” While our priority is always to provide reliable and safe energy, there is another equally important part of this equation. Your well-being and that of the community serve are of paramount concern.
