Service to Community

INSPIRED BY OUR MEMBERS

Sam Houston Electric Cooperative is your Co-op. Like you, we coach kids, volunteer with the local fire department, and serve in local civic organizations. We see each other at the store, church, ball games, and in town. That’s what makes Cooperative membership special. Our job is to make life better for you, our members, and the communities in which we all live. Sam Houston EC is a proud sponsor of local livestock shows, charitable organizations and many of the same things you care about. From giving safety presentations to elementary students to providing scholarships for graduating high school seniors, we are working for the next generation of Co-op members, too.

SMALL CHANGE MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE

Operation Round Up supports non-profit entities that serve our communities. By simply having your electric bill rounded up to the next dollar, you can make a big difference. Join today!

LENDING A HELPING HAND TO MEMBERS

Funded by donations from Cooperative members, employees and board members, Helping Hands has provided Co-op members in need with more than $400,000 in assistance with paying their electric bills.

SERVING BEYOND OUR POWER LINES

October is Co-op Month, and we celebrate each year by giving back to the communities we serve. From improving public parks to presenting safety information, what better way is there to celebrate the cooperative difference?

PROTECTING OUR FEATHERED FRIENDS

Environmental stewardship goes beyond our power generation resources. Sam Houston EC worked with Co-op member Steve Heide to erect a bald eagle nesting pole on Lake Livingston.

FILLING EMPTY CHRISTMAS STOCKINGS

The cooperative spirit is about more than providing electricity for our members. Each year Sam Houston EC adopts local families in partnership with the Empty Stocking and Angel Tree programs.

15 YEARS SUPPORTING RELAY FOR LIFE

In 2016 Sam Houston Electric Cooperative employees raised $7,400 for the American Cancer Society. Through Relay for Life, we serve, we remember, we celebrate, and we work for a cure.

$1 MILLION IN SCHOLARSHIPS

Since 1992 we’ve sponsored a scholarship program for high school seniors whose parents or legal guardians are active Sam Houston EC members, awarding $84,000 annually for higher education.

SAVE EVERY DAY BY USING YOUR CO-OP CONNECTIONS CARD AT LOCAL AND NATIONWIDE BUSINESSES

In 2016 Sam Houston EC members saved $30,000 on prescriptions with the Co-op Connections card. That’s a savings of more than 40 percent! Co-ops nationwide have collectively saved members $100 million on prescriptions with the Co-op Connections Card.
