Merry Christmas from MVEC

Co-op offers year-round programs to benefit members

The holidays are a time of reflection. I’m grateful for my own family as well as my co-op family at Magic Valley Electric Cooperative. We’re driven by a sense of mission and purpose, and our team feels a strong connection to our community and our members because we live here too.

While many of our community-focused programs and activities ramp up this time of year, we have several programs and services in place to help our members year-round. I’d like to remind you about some of these offerings, in hopes you’ll find them beneficial.

We hope you’ll take advantage of the MVEC web portal and MVEC mobile app, which empowers you to monitor your electricity usage and pay your energy bill.

Our Operation Round Up program helps the most vulnerable members of our community. By simply choosing to round up your electric bills to the next whole dollar, you can help your neighbors. If you’d like to participate in our Operation Round Up program, please contact us at 866-225-5683 or sign up through our web portal or the MVEC mobile app.

One of the most important investments we make is in our local youth. MVEC has awarded more than $1.3 million in scholarships to local students through the years; these scholarships are funded by unclaimed capital credits. Under Texas law, electric cooperatives can apply to use a portion of unclaimed capital credits towards scholarships. In addition, each year, through our Government- in-Action Youth Tour program, we send high school juniors and seniors to Washington, D.C. for an immersive weeklong experience of democracy in action.

At the heart of all these programs is you—the members we proudly serve. Looking back, I’m grateful for so many wonderful community partners and for the positive impact we can continue to make.

This holiday season, I wish you and your loved ones peace, joy and prosperity. Speaking on behalf of our team at MVEC, I know the future will be bright because of you.
