Our Commitment to Community
Community involvement is important to cooperatives like Meriwether Lewis Electric; in fact, it is one of the ways we shape how we do business. At Meriwether Lewis, community involvement goes further than being a good citizen. It means looking beyond our business to support other local businesses and communities.
Serving Our Members Means Serving Our Communities
At an organizational level, we are active in the communities we serve through sponsorships and donations. Our Youth Programs include scholarships, annual trips for students, and contests.
Educational electric safety demonstrations, power quality studies, and home energy audits are among the other public services we offer members free of charge.
Supporting Local Businesses
MLEC is also proud to support local businesses in our service area by offering the Co-op Connections Program. This program provides free advertising for businesses and offers discounts to members.
