Here at the Cooperative we have been working to trim up our budgets and lower controlled costs. With the nature of uncertainties like environmental mandates, unknown power costs, decreased growth rates and overall attrition, we want to efficiently operate the co-op to help offset unforeseen expenses while still paying patronage capital and keeping rates affordable for you – our members.
It’s starting to look different around here. Just since September of 2018, we’ve had several long-time employees retire. Combined, those employees dedicated many years of service to the co-op in positions that won’t be replaced. This has allowed us an opportunity to restructure and promote some exemplary employees that will be able to take on more responsibility.
Just as we evaluate federal and environmental issues, our budgets reflect changes internally. As more of our workforce retires, we continue to look for ways to operate leaner while still providing the great service you’ve come to expect from White River Valley Electric Cooperative.
The Current Times provides an excellent means for communication between the cooperative and its members on all topics ranging from green energy such as solar power, to energy saving tips and incentives, to the basic business and financial aspects of the co-op.
