Empowering Youth Through Education

Nolin RECC has always been driven by the desire to make life better for the people we serve. In addition to our mission of providing safe, reliable, affordable power to our members, we are also dedicated to the overall well-being of our communities. We partner within our communities to help them develop into thriving places our members are proud to call home.

Your Neighbor, Your Energy

Nolin RECC is your neighbor in every sense of the word. We’re not only your neighbor because you live in one of the nine counties we serve, we are also neighbors because we share a common purpose and interest, to improve the quality of life in this place we call home.

And, Nolin RECC is in a great position to serve our home area from Radcliff to Magnolia because we are a cooperative. Cooperatives—by their very nature—are uniquely suited to understand their own local community. Nolin was built by, belongs to and is led by people in our communities.

Be careful: The safe way is the best way

May is Electrical Safety Month. Because safety is discussed so frequently due to its importance, we can sometimes take it for granted. For as long as I can remember, each time I have a conversation with my grandfather we conclude the discussion with him reminding me to “be careful.” I always respond that “I will.” To which he would reiterate that I be “double careful.” I don’t think that I was able to fully grasp what he meant until I became a parent. Now that I am responsible for a workforce in an inherently dangerous field, this has taken on an even greater meaning for me.

Celebrating Earth Day all year

In recognition of Earth Day on April 22, I want to highlight some of the ways Nolin is working to most efficiently use its resources and be good stewards of the environment. We have many employees who share a desire to conserve resources and reduce waste, but a few have gone above and beyond to make sure that we get the most out of our efforts.

The Value of Our Employees

In March, we celebrate Employee Appreciation Day. With that in mind, I want to recognize those who work hard for our members all year.

New Year, New Beginnings

As we wrap up the holiday season, we close one chapter and another begins. This is my first time writing to you, as I officially assume the position of president and CEO on January 7, when my predecessor Mickey Miller retires. Congratulations Mickey and thanks for your years of service. We wish you well in your future endeavors.

Farewell

This is my last column for the Nolin News. In January, I will be leaving Nolin RECC and 11-year employee Greg Lee will begin as your president and chief executive officer. Greg’s education, experience and leadership will take Nolin to the next level. In the past 45 years, Nolin has accomplished much. In the next 45 years, there will be opportunities to do even more. As Greg leads the cooperative and your employees, I see a tremendous future for a strong Nolin RECC.

Give Thanks for Our Veterans

November is both a month of thanksgiving and a time for recognizing those among us who have put on a uniform in service to our nation. Here at Nolin RECC, we count veterans and active duty military among those for whom we give thanks every day.
