Touchstone Energy Community Award
Any civic organization or non-profit in ECE’s service territory is eligible to compete for the award if they’ve enhanced the quality of life in their community. Organizations are encouraged to submit an application, or applications can be submitted by others on behalf of a civic group or non-profit. ECE will recognize the local winner with a plaque and a $500 cash prize. The organization will then compete with winners from other electric cooperatives for the statewide Touchstone Energy Community Award and a cash prize of $1,000.

Board moves to proceed with local authority resolution

The purpose of the resolution will be to secure local decision-making, not to substantively change the way the cooperative interacts with distributed generation. Written comments will be acepted until Sept. 13, 2017. They can be sent to East Central Energy.
