Thank you to Energy Cooperative for being a 2022 Sponsor of Licking County Farm Bureau!
Energy Cooperative is a nonprofit organization that was founded in 1936 by a group of farmers in Knox and Licking County. They provide safe and reliable energy to their members at reasonable rates. The members elect the board members, attend annual meetings, and vote on matters that affect the company.
Energy Cooperative cares about their members and the communities they serve in. They donate to schools and parks, provide scholarships for college, and allow volunteer hours to the United Way. In 2005, a community service program called Operation Round Up was adopted. This program “rounds up” a member’s bill to the nearest dollar amount and that amount is donated to charities in their service areas. In 2019, Electric Cooperative partnered with Ohio Farm Bureau and they made a $25,000 donation to the Fisher Fund for Lifelong Learning.
