Rooted in the Community: Celebrating National Ag Day

March 21, 2022

Our Cooperative has come a long way since local farmers, ranchers, and rural families came together to bring electricity and greater opportunities to the region more than 80 years ago. Still, we’ve remained true to our roots and steadfast in our commitment to supporting, investing in, and strengthening our local communities.

This year, on March 22, we celebrate National Agriculture (Ag) Day. We are thankful every day for the contributions farmers have made in our communities. Ag Day is a day when producers, agricultural associations, corporations, universities, government agencies, and countless others across America gather to recognize and celebrate the abundance provided by agriculture.

Agriculture is the backbone of our country and is North Carolina’s leading industry. Our livelihood greatly depends on the crops provided by American farmers.

Now more than ever, we salute and honor the men and women who contribute daily to our national prosperity. Thanks to the efficiency of our farmers and ranchers, our rural communities are stronger and more resilient.

We are proud to support farmers’ operational needs through safe, reliable, and affordable power. We look forward to growing the relationship between agriculture and energy to create efficiencies that benefit all North Carolina communities.

Thank you again to our farmers, agricultural members, and partners for the vital ways you support our daily lives.
