HILCO serves the local community

I’m thankful to be part of HILCO Electric Cooperative because our employees are some of the hardest-working, most caring people I know. Our mission is to provide affordable, reliable and safe electricity, but we also aim to improve the quality of life in the communities we serve. It’s a mission we all take seriously and one of the principles our cooperative was founded on.

I’m thankful for HILCO because it allows employees to live alongside those we serve. The beauty of a cooperative is that it’s locally owned and operated—there are no distant shareholders pulling strings behind the scenes. Members elect members to serve on the board of HILCO and govern the co-op. We are your neighbors, your friends and your family.

I’m thankful for my co-op because it serves as a vibrant force in the local economy—partly because we are local. That means HILCO is invested in the future of the communities we serve.

I’m thankful for my co-op because we care. From providing safety training to young people and coordinating an annual food drive to reaching out to members with information that helps them save energy and money, we care about the people and the towns we serve.

Finally, I’m thankful for you, our members and supporters, because without you, there would be no HILCO. You are the wind beneath our wings and the reason we’re still around.

Happy Thanksgiving to your family from your HILCO family.
