The Value of Co-op Connections®: We were local before local was cool.
Whether you travel across the country or prefer to stay close to your hometown, one thing you may notice is the emphasis on “Buy Local” campaigns. This is based on one simple fact: It’s important to support businesses that support our community. That’s what York Electric, a locally owned and controlled cooperative, has been about for 74 years.
The Small Business Administration and the research firm Civic Economics estimated that dollars spent at a locally owned business stay in the community three times longer than money spent at “Big Box” stores, headquartered far from your hometown. This means your community wealth is more likely to grow by shopping locally.
Our Co-op Connections program allows York Electric and other Touchstone Energy® co-ops to help local members and local, participating businesses that offer discounts to members. Members save on products and services; the local business gains a vital “co-op connection” with potential customers — our members.
