Caddo & Kiwash Together


Published for the members of Caddo & Kiwash Electric Cooperatives A supplement to Oklahoma Living It’s all in the name of Cooperation


CKenergy Electric Cooperative, Inc., a new take on a system that works. By definition, a name is a word


or set of words by which a person, animal, place, or thing is known, addressed, or referred to. A name is the first thing you


think of when you want to identify something. It signifies your brand, trademark, your history, and even your values. In 1936, the REA(Rural Electrifi-


cation Act) set out to provide elec- tricity to rural America and to do that it would take a unified effort. Electric cooperatives are the result of that effort. By being dubbed electric cooper-


atives, it meant that each and every single person, whether it was a member, employee, board member, etc..., involved knew that a concert- ed effort was being made to provide affordable electricity to rural areas. Te names Caddo Electric and


Kiwash Electric symbolize a time when our nation revolutionized the energy industry. CEC and KEC both were formed at the dawn of a new era when electricity was brought to parts of the country that


had been in the dark for far too long. By coming together as one coop-


erative, Caddo Electric and Kiwash Electric have the opportunity to continue on with tradition and also embrace the future. We’re taking the names of two time-tested, member valued, efficient cooper- atives and meshing them together to create CKenergy. It’s a testament to our past, but also an insight into our future. Our members are at the core of


our being. For you guys, we prom- ise to stay true to who we are as an electric cooperative. We are the same cooperatives that you have grown to know. Te only difference is we will be a singular cooperative with a brand new name.


As mentioned before, a name


signifies your brand, trademark, history, and your values. Te name CKenergy is representative of the parent cooperatives of Caddo (C) and Kiwash (K). If we were to exclude our history in this consol- idation, it would all be for naught. Our predecessors paved the way for our cooperatives to come togeth- er as one. We are preserving our history, while also embracing a new identity. So for the sake of a name, we look


to usher in a new energy era with a well preserved history, a fresh outlook, and our members that we hold near and dear to us.
