At United Electric we truly care about the communities we serve. Our employees work together to make a difference in your community.
Two well established Cooperative principals include concern for communities, and education and training for our members. In keeping with these traditions, the Board of Directors of United Electric has decided to reinvest returned, unclaimed capital credits back to the community by providing educational scholarships to our members.
Several years ago, as a result of Pennsylvania’s lobbying efforts in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania Electric Cooperatives are now able to use their escheated money within their local communities. Escheated money is capital credits from former members that have been unclaimed; and, the members have not been able to be located for 3 years. Legislators have agreed to allow the Cooperatives to use funds locally for specific causes.
