LIVEWIRE | PAGE 3 Member Pat McFatridge wins $50 bill credit By JuliAnn Graham, Communication Specialist P


at McFatridge found Tri-County Electric’s Quarterly Question contest on Facebook and took a few moments to enter. Those few moments saved her $50 on her August electric bill when her name was randomly drawn from all the entries. “I really appreciate winning the credit,” McFatridge said. “That’s about half my summer electric bill. I can keep it a little cooler in the house or I might save that money for other bills.” The 2Q-2012 question that McFatridge answered was, “What do


you feel is the greatest cooperative membership benefi t?” Her response was, “The lowest prices possible, co-op members always benefi t.” McFatridge, who lives in Guymon, has been a member since the


cooperative acquired the city in 2006. She has lived in Guymon many years and is retired from Seaboard Foods. McFatridge said she likes to attend the cooperative’s annual meetings. “It’s a great way to learn what’s going on with the cooperative,”


McFatridge said. “I try to attend when I can.” McFatridge said she wasn’t aware the cooperative offered a Co- op Connections card which provides prescription discounts as well as local and national business discounts. Upon hearing about it, she requested one of the free cards. Several other respondents to the question listed the Co-op Connections card as the greatest membership benefi t, saying:  Awesome customer service and discount card.  The benefi t for prescriptions is the best since there are so many people in our area who do not have a prescription plan.


 Our “rewards” card.  Traveling discounts throughout the state of Oklahoma.


Other members who answered the question felt that the quality of service received and having a voice were the greatest benefi ts. They said:  The service and caring workers.  Being a member-owner helps control costs and quality of service.  Everyone pulling together can supply our electrical needs more economically.


 Knowing that you have a friend out there - when you call they are here to help.

3Q-2012


“What is the most convenient payment option for you? Why?” Entries due by Oct. 31.


 Low electric prices.  If I had to narrow it down to one advantage, I would have to say having a vote and being able to voice my opinion on how the company is run would be fi rst. The thing I appreciate the most about cooperatives is their commitment to the community.


 Service and information.  Having rural electricity at a reasonable rate available to us.  Being a member means that I know if there is a problem it will get taken care of as soon as possible.  Local people taking care of local people and knowing the needs of the community.  Peace of mind. The contest is simple. Every quarter, the cooperative asks its membership a question. Any cooperative member can enter via mail, email or online.
