Maintenance efforts take flight

If there is one thing that electric cooperatives are proud of but not always known for, it’s innovation. Electric co-ops began forming in the 1930s when friends and neighbors in rural America started joining together to bring electricity to their homes and farms which major power companies were unwilling to invest in. Even then, at the very beginning, the innovative way of doing business set co-ops apart. Now, 80 years later, challenges continue to drive innovation, and innovation still drives co-ops.
