Celebrating Growth: October is National Co-op Month

October 6, 2023

As we welcome the crisp autumn air and vibrant hues of October, we recognize this beautiful month as National Co-op Month. Union Power is joining cooperatives across the U.S. to celebrate the cooperative spirit that drives our community. As all co-ops come in different shapes and sizes, we all have one thing in common: to provide goods or services for the members of the co-op.
Electric co-ops, including Union Power, prioritize providing reliable, affordable, and sustainable electricity to our local communities and members.
As we celebrate Co-op Month this October, we’re focusing on how “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 are 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 Union Power, your satisfaction is our primary 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!
