Heartland REMC is a member-owned electric cooperative headquartered in northeastern Indiana. As a cooperative, Heartland REMC follows seven core principles that are universal to cooperatives worldwide. Among those principles is one stressing education, training and information. Indiana Connection, a monthly magazine published especially for Indiana’s electric cooperative members, is one way the REMC informs and educates its members. Indiana Connection is available not only in a print format, but as an electronic publication for those who prefer getting their information on their electronic devices.
Heartland REMC’s offices will be closed Thursday, July 4. Please have a safe and happy Independence Day celebration!
