Clay Electric Co-operative to open doors to new building in February
This month marks the culmination of Clay Electric Co-operative’s efforts to provide the membership with a modern and efficient facility. According to former CEO Edward VanHoose, “The old office building was at the point of spending more money for repairs than it was worth.” While the exact date hasn’t been set, we encourage our members to keep an eye and an ear open for the announcement of our official reopening.
The design process on the new building began years before breaking ground on the new facility last year. The old office served CECI’s membership dutifully for decades, but with the cost of repairs and emerging safety concerns, the board of trustees made the decision to pursue a building project. The new facility will be outfitted with modern communications equipment and energy efficient heating, cooling and lighting systems.
“It has been exciting to watch this project progress from idea to reality,” said CEO Luke Johnson. “There have been ups and downs along the way, but we are glad to be in the home stretch. I’m proud to be able to give our membership a facility this nice without having the cost increase our rates. We will be announcing the official reopening date very soon and encourage our members to come check us out once the final touches are all made.”
