Farmers RECC Achieves Fifth Governor's Safety and Health Award

In August 2016, Farmers RECC surpassed 250,000 man hours worked with no lost time accidents, making Farmers RECC eligible for their fifth Governor’s Safety and Health Award.

In the electric utility industry, safety is the top priority, especially considering the hazardous nature of the work involved in providing reliable electricity to members. Farmers RECC linemen maintain thousands of miles of electric lines and equipment and regularly work around high voltage electric lines. In addition, trips, slips and falls can be just as hazardous to workers’ health.

Farmers RECC Members Benefit from Cooperative Ownership

Members who receive service from Farmers RECC are member-owners of the Cooperative. What makes an individual or business receiving service from Farmers RECC a ‘member-owner’ instead of a ‘customer?’ The answer is simple.

When you signed up to receive electric service from Farmers RECC, you became a member-owner of a non-profit cooperative.  A cooperative is owned by those it serves.  Unlike for-profit businesses, a cooperative’s primary focus is on providing a needed service for its member-owners and not on generating a profit for shareholders.
