Electric Co-ops Grow for the Communities They Serve
OCTOBER IS NATIONAL CO-OP MONTH
October is National Co-op Month, and Jones-Onslow EMC is joining cooperatives across the U.S. to celebrate. Co-ops come in all shapes and sizes, but they each have a common goal: to provide goods or services for the members of the co-op.
Electric co-ops, including JOEMC, exist to serve their members. Our priority is to provide affordable, reliable energy to our local communities. Because we are led by you, the members we serve, we can evolve to meet your needs. Members are becoming interested in alternate sources of power, and we are here to help answer questions to help them make informed decisions. One member stated on a Customer Satisfaction Survey, “I recently got solar power and a generator for my home. Your solar expert, TJ, provided wonderful advice and is very knowledgeable and supportive in helping me establish my solar system. JOEMC employees are doing their members a great service and should be commended.”
This October, as we celebrate Co-op Month, we’re focusing on the ways “Co-ops Grow” for their members.
CO-OPS GROW COMMUNITIES:
Co-ops help communities grow by promoting economic empowerment, fostering community engagement, and supporting the unique needs of co-op members. “Concern for Community” is one of our core principles—and being community-focused is essential to everything we do.
CO-OPS GROW TOGETHER:
Co-ops are all about cooperation, not competition. That’s why electric co-ops work together to share lessons learned, successful strategies, and better ways to serve our members. We’re better when we grow together!
CO-OPS GROW TOMORROW’S LEADERS:
Electric co-ops serve as fertile ground for growing tomorrow’s leaders through various youth engagement programs. Whether through school demonstrations, community events, or the Electric Cooperative Youth Tour program, we’re committed to providing opportunities for local youth to learn and thrive in our community and beyond.
CO-OPS GROW FOR YOU:
At JOEMC, your satisfaction is our number one goal. It’s why we were formed many years ago to fulfill a uniquely local purpose. We’ve come a long way since then, and your needs continue to evolve. That’s why we’ll never stop growing for you!
