Mills Retires after 41 Years of Service


You set up your electric service account with Harmon Electric Association and you think to yourself, “That’s done. Now I just have to pay my monthly bill.” But the truth is we’re more than just a utility provider that you pay each month for electricity. We have


more to offer - and we want you, our members, to know about these benefi ts.


There are more than 900 electric cooperatives in the U.S. that serve 42 million members. Harmon Electric, your local electric cooperative, serves approximately 3,500 meters with over 1,900 miles of line. So what makes being a member of an electric cooperative unique? We’re all in this together. You are a member of Harmon Electric - not a customer. And that means you have a voice when it comes to the way we do business. Each April, you have the option to vote for your board of trustees. These trustees play a key role in making important decisions for our co-op, which is why members’ voices must be heard. 161100 We’re local. It’s likely that you know an employee of Harmon Electric. Our employees - your friends and neighbors - share the same concerns for our community that you do. Each year, Harmon Electric participates in local livestock shows, supports school athletic programs, proms, Youth Tour, scholarships, and leadership programs for our youth. These are just a few programs we are involved in, to learn more about our mission to strengthen our community, visit www.harmonelectric.com. We’re not-for-profi t. Harmon Electric doesn’t offer profi ts to investors - we allocate money over and above operating costs to you, our members, based on electricity consumption. Annually, electric co-ops nationwide return millions of dollars to members through this capital credits process. We’re here for you. At Harmon Electric, our mission is to provide you with safe, reliable, and affordable electricity. We care about our members’ quality of life, which is why our employees are continuously fi nding innovative ways to improve our service. We try to give you updates on events, outages, and peak alerts on Facebook. A fairly new option you may be interested in is our Pre- Pay meters. This allows you to pay for electricity in advance. We have quite a few members on Pre-Pay and it has really worked out well. Also another budgeting tool is the My Meter app. With this app you can track your daily usage online.


These are just a few facts about electric cooperatives that make us unique. For more information about Harmon Electric and the services we offer, visit www.harmonelectric.com.

Harmon Electric emplyees hosted a retirement luncheon April


11th honoring Randy Mills for his years of dedication to the Association and its members. Harmon Electric employees and members of Randy’s family were in attendance for the celebration. Randy has worked as a lineman on the maintenance crew, worked as part of the construction crew and spent the majority of his years at Harmon Electric as meter technician. Randy’s position will be fi lled by Chad Shotts who has worked under Randy’s supervision for the past 2 1/2 years. During his retirement Randy plans on spending time with his grandchildren and taking care of the cattle operation that he and his son, Jeremy, own together. Harmon Electric will miss the experience he brought to the job, and employees will miss Randy coming by every morning to speak to each one of them. We wish him the very best during his retirement.
