What We Do

1. Lowers cooperative operating costs, increasing coop profit and thus member-owner dividends

  • Economics STATS!!!!!!!!

When coops are in a better financial position, they can return more to their members and invest in more member-centric programs that also improve member-owner experience

2. Improves energy affordability for all member owners and & improves PAYS customer home health and comfort

  • rates go down for everyone, not just those who are participating

  • air sealing and duct sealing from the EE retrofit/weatherization eliminates unhealthy drafts and particulates, improving health and comfort.

  • Rural households experience a disproportionate energy burden but PAYS EE is immediately cash flow positive, lowering energy bill in-the first month

  • rural areas also have above average populations that are at or below the federal poverty level and improving health helps families avoid expensive treatment and hospital and doctor visits

3. Reinvests in rural communities and small towns by training and hiring local workforce

  • These programs support rural economic development

  • These programs also combat brain drain by creating demand for next generation energy efficiency products and services
