We Love Our Community

A message from General Manager/CEO Jeff Lane

“To move forward, you have to give back.”

Those words from Oprah Winfrey could be used to describe the special bond and obligation that ties Trinity Valley Electric Cooperative to the community we serve. With Valentine’s Day approaching, we can’t think of a better time to express how much we love this community and serving you, the members of the co-op.

We know that when our founders—members of the community, like you—helped bring electricity to rural Texas decades ago, the quality of life improved for all. Through the years, we have been at the forefront of helping our area thrive. We want to help meet the long-term needs of our community to ensure its continued success—because we live here too. While our top priority is to provide safe, reliable and affordable energy to you, equally important is our mission to enrich the lives of our members. This focus on the larger community is central to the way we operate as a cooperative. TVEC knows that electricity is a critical need for modern-day life, but it takes more than poles and power lines to make a community.

Throughout the co-op’s existence, our charitable programs and other outreach projects have fed hungry families, enabled those in need to keep their lights on, educated students and so much more—and we couldn’t do any of this without you, our members.

We all benefit from these programs because of you and your neighbors. You empower TVEC through your membership and through your participation in and support of these programs. As a local business, we are proud to power your life and bring good things to our community. We hope you will continue to guide our efforts by sharing your perspective as we plan for the future. The energy landscape is constantly changing, fueled by evolving technology and consumer desires for more options. But one thing remains the same: By working together, I’m certain that we can.
