Who Powers You?: Touchstone Energy contest honors hometown heroes

While those who took top honors last year did not come from our service area, several who are in Basin Electric’s service area were nominated.

In the co-op world, powering our communities means a lot more than producing and transmitting electricity – it’s about people using their energy to make their neighborhoods a better place to live.

This cooperative value of commitment to community is the foundation of Touchstone Energy®Cooperatives’ annual #WhoPowersYou competition, an online contest that recognizes electric distribution cooperative members making positive impacts in their communities.

“The contest is a great way to recognize the people who give their time and talents to improve the lives of others in their community,” says Chad Reisenauer, Basin Electric’s director of community and member relations.

In addition to the recognition, winners are given cash prizes – the grand prize is $5,000, second place receives $2,000, third place is $1,500, and honorable mention is $500.

While those who took top honors last year did not come from our service area, several who are in our neck of the woods were nominated.
