Power On: October is National Co-op Month

Clay Electric Co-operative lives by its mission statement “To provide safe, reliable, and exceptional service to our member owners.” Because we are a co-op, our goal is to enrich the lives of our members and serve the long-term interests of our local community––and this mission has never been more critical than in recent months. One of the seven principles that guides all co-ops is “concern for community.” This principle is the essential DNA of Clay Electric Co-operative, and it sets us apart from other electric utilities.

From the Manager October 2020

I am always thankful for the dedicated service our staff provides to our members. The cooperative business model is built for the benefit of all the people we serve, not to benefit stockholders and pile up profits. The men and women of Clay Electric Co-operative have bought in to the culture of service and work each day for you. When the call for mutual aid assistance came in after Hurricane Laura hit Louisiana, our linemen and line clearance crews proved their commitment to not only our members, but the members of our sister cooperatives around the country.

Electricity brings everyday value

Many people have a cell phone to stay connected and subscribe to cable channels to enjoy more viewing options. Many of us consider these necessities for modern day life. We can see what we’re getting for our money, and we pay the price for those services. In contrast, when we use electricity, we don’t necessarily “see” all that we’re getting for our money.

From the Manager - 76th Annual Meeting Postponed

August would be the month of our 76th Annual Meeting of the Members for Clay Electric Co-operative. As it stands, we will be postponing our annual meeting.
