Nolin RECC is a Touchstone Energy® Cooperative, which is a national network of electric cooperatives that provides resources and leverages partnerships to help our member cooperatives and their employees better engage and serve their members. By working together, Touchstone Energy cooperatives in 46 states supply reliable, affordable and safe energy to 32 million member-owners every day.
We work for you.
A cooperative is an organization owned by the members using its facilities or services for their benefit. That’s why at Nolin RECC we consider you a member and an owner, too. You and your neighbors, the more than 32,000 other member-owners of Nolin RECC, share the responsibility of steering the cooperative. You select the board of directors and have input on important issues facing the cooperative. Through your opinions, your feedback and your votes, you help lead the cooperative through a changing utility environment day-by-day. When Nolin RECC was formed in 1938, it was one of Kentucky’s first cooperatives. An active and passionate membership helped the cooperative bring the luxury of electrification to our rural population. We’re proud of that history, but electrification is only one part of the ever-growing scope of cooperative services. We’re not only your energy provider, we’re a neighbor who grows with you. We hope you will take advantage of the many services we provide, and we hope that you will take a few moments to be involved and let us know what you think of Nolin RECC.
Nolin RECC delivers core values that our members have come to rely on since we were first incorporated in 1938. We believe that the best way to manage tomorrow’s change is to remember the values of the past, values like honesty, integrity, dedication, commitment, and community.
Combining computer-age techniques with common-sense values is something electric coops are used to doing. Some 78 years ago investor-owned utilities didn’t think country folk would ever use enough electricity for them to be able to make a profit from stringing lines to households beyond the city limits. But the people in small towns and rural communities could envision the value of bringing light to the countryside. They banded together and came up with a number of innovations to get electricity: new engineering of distribution lines, government loan programs, organizing the local utilities as cooperative corporations, and most of all, sharing resources with each other for the good of their communities.
