FreeState is Still Here for You, Even at a Distance

COVID19 has brought many changes to our communities, and is affecting the way we live, work and interact. Throughout the pandemic, one thing has remained constant – our commitment to serving you and your energy needs in a safe manner. We are one of the many essential services responding to the national emergency, and our employees are working for you. Our linemen are ensuring our members, communities and businesses have the power they need.

The health and safety of our members, our communities, and our employees is always FreeState's priority. During this challenging time, the cooperative will be doing its part to limit the spread of the virus while providing the electric service necessary to keep our members comfortable as they adjust to changes in their daily routines and procedures. FreeState’s critical business operations are expected to continue without interruption. We are following the pandemic situation very closely and we will continue to monitor recommended practices as outlined by the Centers for Disease Control, World Health Organization, and state officials.

Thank you for your understanding as we take measures to ensure the health and safety of all so that we can continue meeting the needs of our members. Our homes are more important to us than ever before, they are a safe haven where we are spending more time. As schools turn to online learning, and the telecommuting workforce continues to grow, we are here to keep the lights on for you.
