Capital Credits are the only form of equity a member-owned utility has. Each year, all revenue over and above expenses is assigned by the Cooperative to each member’s Capital Credits Account. The amount of your Capital Credits is determined by your yearly payments for electricity.
TRADE A TREE
York Electric’s Trade A Tree Program helps members replace trees that must be removed by the co-op to ensure service reliability.
811 CALL BEFORE YOU DIG
Before you begin a project, such as installing a new fence, planting shrubbery or trees, take into account that underground electric service or other utility lines may be present. If you’re not absolutely sure where any underground lines are located on your property, call 811.
OPERATION ROUND UP®
For only pennies a month or approximately $6 a year, by rounding up your monthly electric bill, York Electric’s giving program allows each member to help make a difference for those in our communities who need it most.
York Electric is proud to offer some great opportunities for youth education. First, we award numerous annual scholarships – including $1,000 Touchstone Energy® Scholarships – to high school seniors.
YEC also sponsors local high school juniors on an all-expense-paid trip to our nation’s capital for a chance to see our government in action as part of the annual, week-long Washington Youth Tour.
Finally, during the annual Cooperative Youth Summit in July, we sponsor local high school juniors to experience our state capital with a tour of the statehouse, a chance to meet lawmakers, and visits to Columbia attractions.
We regularly offer safety demonstrations to students and other groups throughout our service area in an effort to teach important safety lessons to the participants. See detailed information pertaining to the safe use of electricity.
York Electric’s development of the East York Industrial Park is exemplary of the Cooperative’s commitment to bring quality industry and jobs to York County.
