Members matter. This is the reason that we spend time each summer educating our members on ways to save on their power bills.
Temperatures have been more like a typical south Mississippi summer, and with August and September approaching, we will likely see higher temperatures continue. As you are aware, the warmer the temperatures are, the more your air conditioner runs, affecting your power bill.
On the following pages, we provided a recap of the recent Energy Fairs that we offered in Laurel, Petal and Waynesboro. We offer these free educational events to the public because we want to inform you, our members, on ways to save on your power bill by making wise energy efficient choices.
On another topic, we participated in a couple of recent national and regional surveys that included some of our members. We’re happy to say that, for many of the questions in the surveys, Dixie Electric was ranked very favorably compared to other electric cooperatives and investor-owned electric utilities. We also realize there are areas we need to improve in and some of the questions in the surveys reflected that as well. We want you to know that we will work hard to improve in those areas and, in areas where we did well, we will strive to continue meet the standards that you expect from us.
As I mentioned above, membership matters both to you and to us. Dixie Electric is an electric cooperative that exists to serve our members with reliable electric energy. Dixie Electric’s board and employees are focused on the local community, which is why we offer Energy Fairs and provide online resources to help you save energy on dixieepa.com.
Our electric co-op was built by the community, belongs to the community and continues to be led by the community––that’s the cooperative difference!
