When The Lights Came on

As we talk about a new energy and the future of cooperatives, we also want to connect with our past to feature stories describing the time when the co-op brought power to the farm, ranch or residence. Perhaps it’s a memory of your first electric appliance, or your ability to utilize electricity in barns or shops. We want to share your stories with our members.
