Call Us First

A Message from General Manager/CEO Jeff Lane

I don’t know about you, but at my house, we’re bombarded with information. Among the TV, daily piles of junk mail, email, social media, the radio and even random phone calls, it just never seems to end. Everybody seems to be selling something, and it can be hard to know who to trust.

But one thing I know for sure: As your nonprofit electric cooperative and neighbor, we try to be a source for reliable and honest information about electricity. So call us first.

At Trinity Valley Electric Cooperative, we’re not in the business of making profits for investors, as other utilities are. We’re in the business of powering communities and empowering our members. We’re your friends and neighbors, and we live right here in the same community. We go to the same stores, churches and restaurants, and we work for you.

We know consumers have more options than ever nowadays. You can produce your own electricity at your home or business, store that power, and use it to power electric vehicles or even your house.

TVEC is a cooperative that was built by the very communities it powers. We have a duty to share our specialized energy knowledge with our members. We want to make sure you have all the very best information when it comes to making decisions about electricity that can impact your future.

Through Texas Co-op Power magazine, tvec.net, member emails and social media, we do our best to provide useful information that can help you keep yourself and your family safe, keep energy costs where you need them to be and give you insights into the ever-changing energy landscape.

So if you get a flyer about solar power and wonder if it might be right for your home, call us first. Everybody’s situation is different, and our energy management adviser can look at your usage history and help you understand if solar power might work in your favor.

Thinking about ordering a whole-home generator? Let us know. We can point you or your electrician to resources to make sure that your backup power does not become a safety hazard for our crews as they repair power lines.

Want to save on your electric bill? Check out the resources we have available to inform you about ways to use less energy and make the most of what you do use. We know our part of Texas better than anyone and can help you find inexpensive ways to conserve power at your home.

Whatever you do, trust your friends and neighbors at TVEC and make us your first source for information. Knowledge is power, after all.
