What it Means to be a Member?
An electric cooperative is a utility provider that is owned by the members it serves. We are a not-for-profit whose margin over cost is either put back to run the business efficiently, or is returned to the members.
Medina EC began when local people from the rural community joined together to bring the new technology of electricity to the people in the country. When the cooperative formed in 1938, membership cost $5 and we're proud of the fact that Medina EC is still only $5 to join.
We still continue to look out for our communities today with the same great attitude of local people serving you. Our business is guided by Seven Cooperative Principles.
Medina EC communicates with the members in a number of ways. In addition to this website, the primary form of communication from your cooperative is in the local pages of the Texas Co-op Power magazine sent out to each Medina EC member.
You may also see communication from your cooperative on your bills and in the mail. Medina EC encourages communication with the membership and you can always contact us!
There are a number of ways members can become involved in your cooperative. Check out the Member Involvement section to find out how!
