The "good" power outages

At times, power outages may seem like the bane of an electric cooperative. They can happen unexpectedly, causing inconvenience and a disruption to daily life. Cass County Electric’s line crews and power control technicians work to get power restored safely and as quickly as possible when outages happen. After all, no one likes being literally left in the dark. Like many things in modern life, power outages may seem like a nuisance on the surface, but sometimes they can actually be beneficial for both the co-op and its members.

Editorial: Giving Back

Marshal AlbrightOne of the most important values we live by at Cass County Electric Cooperative (CCEC) is giving back to the communities we serve. We fulfill this commitment by volunteering to support local events and non-profits and assisting in the administration of a membership-supported foundation called Operation Round Up.

Powering a growing area

There is a lot of variety within a growing region. Homes, shops, restaurants, schools, and churches pop up all around, and when people who left the area years ago come back, they find themselves wondering if they have accidentally returned to the wrong place. They haven’t, it’s just different.

Some things stay the same amidst the changes that come with growth. The need for  electricity at all of these new places is one, and Cass County Electric Cooperative’s goal to provide reliable service is another. Not surprisingly, they go hand-in-hand, and it’s no coincidence.
