The cooperative way of business is special because cooperatives are owned by the consumers they serve and because they are guided by a set of seven principles that reflect the best interests of those consumers.
Southwest Tennessee Electric Membership Corporation has always applied our seven principles to our communities. Cooperative principal #7 is:
Concern for Community
While focusing on member needs, cooperatives work for the sustainable development of communities through policies accepted by the members.
Project Help is a way the cooperative can help fellow members in the community who are struggling and are in need. All donations go to local agencies that provide people with financial assistance during emergencies. You can donate by adding a small amount to your monthly electric bill for as many months you choose. This is a good way to give back to your community.
