Concern for Community Award to be presented
Each year members of Eau Claire Energy Cooperative are given the opportunity to nominate another member who has been outstanding in the community service field.

Upcoming Electric Vehicle Event – Experience EVs!
Electric vehicles (EVs) are a hot topic, and Eau Claire Energy Cooperative is on the leading edge.

It’s is a cooperative partnership between Eau Claire Energy Cooperative, the Chippewa Valley Technical College Energy Education Center, Dunn Energy Cooperative, Chippewa Valley Electric Cooperative, Barron Electric Cooperative and St. Croix Electric Cooperative.
These six sponsors will provide a drive and learn event regarding electric vehicles at CVTC’s west campus on Saturday April 4 from 9am-Noon. A number of EVs, including Eau Claire Energy Cooperative’s new Tesla, will be available to see and drive. With co-op members and the public invited, people will be able to get to know more about electric vehicles and ask some local owners about their experiences with EVs. People will learn about maintenance of this newer technology, learn the basics about EVs, where people can charge them, utility programs to charge them in the convenience of your home, and even drive one. No reservations required.
