Electric Co-ops Grow for the Communities They Serve

October is National Co-op Month, and Daviess-Martin County REMC is joining cooperatives across the U.S. to celebrate. Co-ops come in all shapes and sizes, but they each have a common goal: to provide goods or services for the members of the co-op.

Electric co-ops, including Daviess-Martin County REMC, exist to serve their members. Our priority is to provide affordable, reliable energy to our local communities. Because we are led by you, the members we serve, we can evolve to meet your needs. For example, we live in a more digital world than we ever have before. It’s easier to jump online and fill out a form than drive to the office and pick up the form, fill it out and send it back. That’s why we have added as many of our forms as we can to our website for member convenience, while also still offering printed forms for those who choose that route.

This October, as we celebrate Co-op Month, we’re focusing on the ways “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 serve as fertile ground for growing tomorrow’s leaders through a variety of youth engagement programs. Whether through school demonstrations, community events, Camp Kilowatt or the Indiana Youth Tour, we’re committed to providing opportunities for local youth to learn and thrive in our community and beyond.

CO-OPS GROW FOR YOU: At Daviess-Martin County REMC, your satisfaction is our number one 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!
