Farmers RECC Returns $425,698 in Capital Credits

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 not-for-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.

Protect Kids From Electrical Hazards

Accidents can occur when young children have an opportunity to explore their home and unintentionally expose themselves to electrical dangers. Without proper precaution, everyday items such as power strips, space heaters, outlets and cords can pose a threat.

Especially for toddlers and young children, it is a must to childproof your house from electrical hazards. Luckily, this task is easy to do, and it’s usually inexpensive.

Automated Metering At-A-Glance

Want instant information that can lower your electric bill? Getting timely, accurate data about your electric use is just one of the ways the advanced metering infrastructure (AMI) in use by Farmers RECC has been making life better for members since AMI was deployed in 2008.

Farmers RECC Scholarship and Washington Youth Tour Students Recognized

Back to the Future

I’m a big fan of technology. Farmers RECC depends on it to deliver safe, reliable electricity to you at the lowest possible cost. 

Yet I still prefer the low-tech approach when it comes to calendars. I find satisfaction in turning a paper page to begin a new month. That’s especially true as I flip to January 2021, leaving behind memories associated with words like closed, cancelled and postponed. 

Where Does Your Electricity Come From?

Farmers RECC is one of 16 cooperatives that owns and governs the company that generates and transmits sustainable, affordable and reliable power to us. Our co-op receives energy from East Kentucky Power Cooperative and then distributes it to you and 18,000 members in our eight Kentucky counties.

EKPC generates electricity from two coal-fueled plants: Spurlock Station located in Maysville and Cooper Station near Somerset.

Farmers RECC Lights Up Christmas

Each year, Farmers RECC sponsors the “Lighting Up Christmas” program for a school in their service territory. The program, coordinated by the Events Team at Farmers RECC, gathers unwrapped toys and monetary donations for a school in their service territory to use for students in need.

The school chosen to receive donations in the 2020 Christmas season was Eastern Elementary in Barren County.
