Monday, June 12, 2017
The largest cooperative of the seventeen distribution cooperatives in the Electric Cooperatives of Arkansas network, First Electric Cooperative is a not for profit organization that serves over 91,000 members across 17 counties.
Community centered, the cooperative gives an annual $2000 scholarship to one high school student in each of their five districts. The student must have a certain grade point average and be attending an institute of higher learning.
Using power generated from renewable sources and giving capital credits back to members are two ways First Electric helps their members save big.
