Being a Member Has Its Advantages

One of HILCO Electric Cooperative’s guiding principles is Concern for Community. Our employees work here, live here and share the same values as you. And like you, we believe that the future of our community lies with our children. In keeping with that belief, HILCO EC annually offers scholarships and other opportunities to qualifying students within its service area.

Through programs like the Government-in-Action Youth Tour, HILCO Scholarship for Excellence, Debbie Cole Trade Scholarship and Texas Rural Electric Women’s Association Scholarship, we cement our commitment to the community and to the future.
