Farmers RECC Annual Meeting Recap

Farmers RECC held their Annual Meeting on July 12, 2018 at the Cave City Convention Center with Nashville group ‘Martin Family Circus’ providing entertainment while members registered.

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.

Cold Snap Triggers Spike in Local Energy Use

The unusually cold start to 2018 has resulted in higher than normal energy use by members of Farmers RECC and other utilities across the region.

Farmers RECC is encouraging members to be aware of their energy use and take steps to help manage electric bills, which are also expected to be higher than usual as a result of increased usage.

To keep an eye on daily energy use, Farmers RECC offers the ‘Your Meter’ tool, which can be accessed through the ‘Member Center’ of our website. Members can use the graph to show daily recorded low temperatures.

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.

Flag-Waving Crowd Welcome Veterans Home from Honor Flight
