Youth Tour: Students can be part of something powerful

Tennis shoes. Check. Bottled water. Check. Eagerness to learn and lead. Check, check. If you're a high school sophomore or junior looking for the trip of a lifetime, then the Rural Electric Youth Tour is the trip for you!

Imagine: a chance to visit Washington, D.C., for one week, with about 40 students from Ohio. You'll have the opportunity to visit Ohio's congressional delegation. You'll see many of the famous sights of the nation's capital. And the best part? It won't cost you a penny.

North Central needs your phone number

We need telephone numbers!

With more and more people dumping their landlines and switching to cellphones, the cooperative's database has taken a hit over the past several years.

Last month, we presented the customer satisfaction survey results. The results were based on 225 phone interviews plus 120 members who completed the survey online after receiving an e-mail from our research group.

In order to reach 225 members, researchers had to contact 462 members. Naturally, some declined to take the phone survey.

Co-op halts large-capacity water heater sales

One of North Central Electric Cooperative's most popular, long-standing and successful load-management programs has taken a broadside hit from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE).

Electric-resistance eater heaters greater than 55 gallons cannot meet the Department of Energy's new energy efficiency standards that go into effect in April 2015. Effective immediately, the cooperative will no longer sell large-capacity water heaters.

Rate adjustment effective Jan. 1; Phase 3 of Time-of-Day program implemented

Where are we working?
