WHAT ARE WE UP TO?

Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative – Pilot Visit, April 28th – 29th

150 150 Cyrus Crossan

Hi everyone! My name is Cyrus Crossan and I am proud to bring to you Touchstone Energy On Tour. This summer, myself, and other Touchstone Energy staff will travel across co-op country to find the story behind each co-op, in essence, the impact that co-op has on the area. We want to bring to light the good ideas and actions that co-ops do on a daily basis that might go unseen or unheard. We want these stories to resonate with you and to hopefully bring awareness among other co-ops through these visits through this website where we will post updates on our journey through film and photography.

Josh McGhee and I were fortunate enough to visit Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative in southern Virginia, where we met the employees of the cooperative and were blown away by what they had to say. I won’t say too much, as we compiled the interviews in a video that is linked above!

This is the pilot visit to the On Tour program and we hope that you follow Touchstone Energy on this journey throughout co-op country and we hope you find a story to tell about a fellow cooperative and share your story with us with these hashtags, #yourcoopstory, #touchstoneenergy.

Cheers!

WHERE ARE WE GOING NEXT?

TELL YOUR STORY! #YOURCOOPSTORY, #TOUCHSTONEENERGY
