Message from President/CEO Ryan Bartlett:
A clear difference exists in the operation of an organization when the customers are also the owners. The difference is what sets Taylor Electric Cooperative apart and gives us the ability to look out for you – our members. We exist to meet our member’s needs; Local customer service offering in-house billing, 24/7 outage management center, responsive crews and a culture committed to serve our communities.
In 1939, neighbors joined together to improve the quality of life, providing electricity to rural communities. Eighty years later, we are working to improve the quality of life in a different way and have expanded our services to include Access high speed internet. Even with the changes and growth over the years, the structure and governance of Taylor Electric Cooperative is still based on the Cooperative Business Model; taking an ethical, sustainable approach to business by considering not only the economic impacts of their activities, but also their social/cultural and environmental impacts.
