FOR ABOUT 75 YEARS, America’s electric cooperatives have thrived, growing to meet local needs in different parts of the country and earning the trust of millions of people. In all our communities we have been a focal point; a connection; a touchstone of quality.
In 1998 electric co-ops across the U.S. came together to create a new team—Touchstone Energy Cooperatives. Palmetto Electric is proud to be a part of this national brand within America’s energy industry that champions the value of the cooperative difference.
The Touchstone Energy network is made up of close to 750 local, member-owned electric co-ops in 46 states. Touchstone Energy co-ops, like Palmetto Electric, collectively deliver power and energy solutions to more than 30 million members every day.
And because we are a co-op, we have a responsibility to support the communities we serve and exceed expectations there, too. That means we aim to improve the quality of life by programs such as Bright Ideas, Green Power and Operation Round Up.
We’re dedicated to serving our members with innovation, integrity, accountability and commitment to community. Together, Touchstone Energy Cooperatives champion the cause for lowest-cost, democratically governed energy.
To us, it’s about how we use human connection to inspire engagement, preference and loyalty. And it’s about how we help transform relationships.
Palmetto Electric and other Touchstone Energy co-ops take pride in creating innovative programs to better serve our member-consumers. Our Co-op Connections discount card program, for example, has saved Palmetto members almost $2 million on prescription costs. We take even more pride in being reliable neighbors in the communities of which we are a part. We are on a mission to build a strong local and national presence for electric cooperatives.
Above all, we each have a voice, because we are all members; we are all owners; we are all connected; we are all a part of the cooperative network.
