Celebrate National Cooperative Month with LCEC

Every October, cooperatives are recognized for the qualities that make their business model unique. Cooperatives, whether selling electricity or produce, share a common set of principles and values, including self-help and democracy. These principles not only benefit the cooperatives, but the consumers as well. The Seven Cooperative Principles that are the cornerstone for electric cooperatives are:

  • Voluntary and Open Membership
  • Democratic Member Control
  • Members’ Economic Participation
  • Autonomy and Independence
  • Education, Training, and Information
  • Cooperation among Cooperatives
  • Concern for Community

 The electric cooperative business model was formed for and by customers in order to receive electricity in rural areas that investor-owned utilities did not reach. However, not all areas within the LCEC service territory are rural these days.

Unlike investor-owned utilities, cooperatives are not-for-profit businesses that prioritize their Member consumer’s benefits. People and businesses receiving electricity from LCEC are more than just customers, they are Members too. Like other electric cooperatives, LCEC is owned by those they serve. Customers/members vote to elect the board of trustees that represent the communities where they live. 

LCEC, your distribution electric cooperative, was formed in 1940 and now serves more than 200,000 Members throughout five counties in Florida. The LCEC vision is to deliver the power that energizes our community and we work hard to do so.

Please join us in celebrating October as National Cooperative Month!
