Upholding our promise to always look out for our members isn’t something we take lightly here at YEC. On the surface, our members may appreciate our responsiveness during outage situations and our consistently low rates, but we want our members to know our “why.”
What goes on behind the scenes is an integral part of our success in keeping our promise and it starts with each individual employee’s pledge to uphold our strong culture model of humility, hunger, relational wisdom and family. Our culture is simply how we do things around here and what we expect from our team. Not only are the standards we set for the work you see high, but we also believe starting each action and thought with good intentions, as defined in our cultural pillars, helps set us up for success.
In order to provide quality service to our members, it matters how we work together, treat each other and strive to continue learning and improving each day. Our strong culture model defines the caliber of people we seek to have on our team and the unapologetically high standards we set for all employees so that we can continue looking out for you.
We would be remiss to neglect the longevity of YEC’s push for excellence. Our current employees stand on the shoulders of giants who have laid the groundwork for this culture. For 81 years, we have set the bar high; helped grow employees to meet their full potential; learned the importance of trust, personal and professional skills; and have done our part to make sure we all get home safely each day. Each of these four pillars help to support our strong culture and dedication to our members:
- We remember there is no “I” in team and that one person doesn’t deserve sole credit. That’s humility.
- We never stop learning and growing. That’s hunger.
- We know when to speak, but more importantly, when to listen. That’s relational wisdom.
- We lean on each other and learn from one another. That’s family.

Lines tell the story
York Electric Cooperative was formed to bring power to families, homes and businesses in these rural areas, lighting the way for new beginnings. Like other co-ops that were started across the nation after the Rural Electrification Act was passed, YEC was created on the same seven principles that we still uphold in our business today.
