Hendricks Power CEO, Greg Ternet, provided updates on infrastructure investments and equipment upgrades to increase reliability, improved outage response including record-low outage times in 2022, and the rate update earlier in the year. He then spoke about the C&B Graham Solar Energy Project in the Tilden area that recently became operational, informing members that participation options would be provided when available. He also reminded attendees of the core values of a cooperative and of its mission to serve its member-owners.

“This is always an exciting day for us at Hendricks Power,” said Heather Thompson, Director of Marketing, Member Engagement & Community Relations. “We get to interact with so many of our members and enjoy watching them spend time with their families and participate in the day’s activities.
