Secretary-Treasurer Brain Lang presented the cooperative’s finances, average energy use per meter, and average outage time per meter in 2017. All measures showed an improvement from prior years. President Ron Seyfert then reported on our bid to operate and maintain the Fort Riley electrical distribution system, the board’s decision not to change the name of the company, the change in our billing dates, our peak generators, the residential peak reduction pilot program, and the new scholarship program. Thanks to both for their informative reports.
