Your cooperative began by lighting a path for members in 1941 that was otherwise dark. We believed in our communities and wanted to offer the possibility of a better life to everyone, regardless of where they lived. Not much has changed today. York Electric Cooperative takes the responsibility of providing you with affordable, reliable energy a step further by cultivating the communities of our members.
Electricity made life easier and offered new opportunities. York Electric provided this building block of hope, giving the power of light and the power of human connections to members living in rural areas.
Although electricity is now a staple in everyday society, your cooperative continues to offer opportunities of a lifetime. York Electric Cooperative strives to do more than simply provide reliable electricity, we want to help you build a better future by investing in our youth.
At a young age, we teach students about the importance and dangers of electricity. We spend time in our schools helping our children learn about our story and about the cooperative difference. But that’s not all. We send students to Washington, D.C. to learn about the cooperative voice that spreads across our great nation. Similarly, we send another group of young representatives to Columbia to learn about our work in South Carolina. We sponsor 13 different scholarships towards higher education for cooperative members, including one specifically designated for a student who is entering a technical field.
Thank you to each of our recipients for representing York Electric Cooperative’s future. Our dedication to building success, one brick at a time, is tried and true. We’ve continued the tradition, evolving our tactics over the years, and will continue to look out for you for years to come. Together we can make a difference.
