Member Bus Tour
Union County Electric offers a bus tour of its power supply system to cooperative members during the summer months. This is an annual event that includes visits to a wind farm, a coal-powered generating station, a visit to the country's only commercial sized gasification facility and a working coalmine. The tour has been conducted since 1987 and is always a popular activity with cooperative members. Transportation, lodging and meal expenses are all provided by the tour with a member cost of just $25.00 per couple or $12.50 per person. It's a great chance for members to learn about and view their electrical system up close and have a good time with fellow cooperative members.
