The best part about being a member of your local Touchstone Energy® cooperative is just that…it’s YOUR cooperative. That means:
One Member = One Vote
Your co-op membership means that you get a vote, which ensures that your voice is heard and accounted for. Every member can vote and has a right to help elect local board members - shaping policies and influencing business.
You have a say
The democratic process means you have a say in co-op decisions that affect your home, business and community.
Your co-op answers to you
Because your local Touchstone Energy® cooperative is not-for-profit, its responsibility is to answer to you, not shareholders.
Invested in community
When you’re a member of a local Touchstone Energy® cooperative, you’re a part of an organization that is dedicated to your local community.
Because rural electric co-ops are not beholden to shareholders and are not-for-profit, they are able to return profits to their members. That means you can get money back in your pocket for being an electric co-op member!
