Working to serve you

“We’re here to serve you.” We’ve all heard this phrase countless times. These words may sound generic, but to us – your local electric cooperative — they mean everything. 

Jay County REMC was created to serve our community. Back in the day, neighbors banded together and formed our co-op for the common good. In our case, it was the only way the community could bring electricity to the area where there was none. In doing so, the REMC helped the community thrive. That mission-focused heritage is the golden thread that is woven throughout our history.

Today, we are continuing to power the community. While our focus has remained steady on providing reliable energy to our members, today’s energy landscape and consumer expectations are far different than they were decades ago. That’s why we’re adapting, to keep pace with changing technology, evolving needs and new expectations. 

Serving as your trusted energy advisor means we want to help you save energy (and money) and provide advice and information on a broad range of energy topics. For example, if you’re looking for ways to save energy, check out our website,, for energy-saving tips and ideas to increase the energy efficiency of your home.

Consider scheduling a free energy audit with one of our energy experts to identify ways you can save energy at home. Understanding how your home uses energy can help determine the best ways to modify energy use and thereby keep more money in your wallet. 

If you’re considering a rooftop solar installation, our energy advisors would be happy to give you an unbiased view of the pros and cons. Investing in a solar system is a major decision, and it’s important to fully understand the costs, responsibilities and potential energy savings. Unlike a solar company that has one objective — to sell their products and services — we look at the total energy picture and help you determine the best options for your home. We understand homeowners must undertake their due diligence, and we’re here to help you through that process. 

In a similar vein, we recognize that many members are considering electric vehicle options. Jay County REMC provides information about EVs to our members so you can make informed decisions about electric vehicles. We can provide a candid assessment of residential and business charging requirements for all types of EVs. Jay County REMC is also offering ways to save on EV charging. No matter what our members drive, we want to help you achieve energy savings. 

So, the next time you hear Jay County REMC use the phrase “we’re here to serve you,” we hope you know that we mean it. Service is deeply ingrained into who we are. We continue to evolve with the times, and in return, we’ve found additional ways to serve you and provide more options for you to power your life. 

We’re here whenever you need us. Connect with us online, in person or through our social media channels. However you choose to connect, please let us know how we can serve you better.
