Lane Electric - A Touchstone Energy Cooperative

Odds-n-Ends

Dear Lane Electric Community:

This month, I’d like to share a number of items with you in an odds-n-ends sort of way.  The topics below are both timely and relevant to some of the activities going on here at Lane Electric.  I hope these small snippets encourage you to visit the corresponding pages to find out more about what your Co-op is doing.

As you can see by looking over pages 4 & 5, our Community Solar Garden is performing very well.  As of this issue, it has generated over 12,000 kilowatt-hours, almost one-third of its projected annual output, and it is going strong.  There are still 21 panels available for subscription so get yours while they last.  For additional details about our Community Solar Garden, contact Zechariah English or Dave D’Avanzo at 541-484-1151.

On page 8, you will find another reminder that Lane Electric’s office hours are changing.  Our office will be open for business earlier in the morning and later in the evening so members have more time during their day for co-op business.  Beginning the week of June 27, our office hours will be from 7:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday and we will be closed on Fridays.  Of course, we will still be available for outages 24-7 as we have in the past.

Page 25 showcases some of Lane Electric’s finest up-and-comers.  In all, Lane Electric granted a variety of scholarships to nine deserving students from across our service area.  Judging from their applications and biographies, these young people are going to go far.  Take a minute to learn about what this year’s recipients are doing this fall.

There’s been a lot of chatter about the Cascadia Subduction Zone or, “The Big One”, lately and Lane Electric wants you to be aware, too.  Pages 28 & 29 provide an insight and some suggestions as to how you might consider making preparations and readying yourself in case of a natural disaster.  There is some interesting information and a host of useful suggestions that can help.  Spend a few minutes learning how you can help yourself.
