October is here, which means it’s National Co-op Month! Co-op Month is the perfect time to celebrate our unique business model and all the good things Southeastern Indiana REMC is doing to impact the quality of life in Southeastern Indiana. 

Member satisfaction and service

Each year, a portion of our excess revenue is returned to our members as a benefit of membership. We also award Operation Round Up grants twice a year to eligible groups and organizations throughout our seven-county service area. 

Committed to education

Today’s electric utility industry is complex, which makes it all the more critical to equip our staff and leaders with the knowledge, skills, tools and resources needed to help our co-op thrive. 

ORU Presentation

We’re all about community

Our co-op was founded to serve the local community when others wouldn’t. We work hard to deliver reliable, affordable energy to
our members. 

Improving quality of life

This is how we remain relevant, by providing essential services that can improve the quality of life for our members. Our new fiber broadband project, SEI Fiber, is a great example of this. 


More than an energy provider

Because of our business model, we are a catalyst for good that spurs prosperity for our community.  We’re also local. Our employees are your friends and neighbors. We care about the same issues you care about. We’ve been an essential service provider and a vital part of the community for the past 82 years. We’re invested in and committed to safely providing reliable electricity and diversified services to the members and communities we serve.

Ready for the future

Our co-op is striving to anticipate and plan for the future needs of our members and the communities we serve. We have invested in technology,  infrastructure updates, and right-of-way clearing to storm harden the system, ensure greater reliability for electric service, and provide fiber-to-the-home (FTTH) broadband service.
