Happy Birthday Touchstone Energy

This year, Touchstone Energy® Cooperatives, the branding program of the nation’s electric co-ops, celebrates its 15th birthday!

Sam Houston Electric Cooperative has been a proud member of the brand since 2007, and we’re not alone. Touchstone Energy represents a network of 741 co-ops serving 30 million members in 46 states, all committed to improving the quality of life for families and businesses in the communities we serve.

Starting with a single TV commercial in 1998, Touchstone Energy now provides co-ops with more than 50 powerful programs and tools we would not be able to offer without their support. It’s the cooperative advantage at work.

Launched April 4, 1998, the brand constantly evolves to better meet the needs of co-ops. Touchstone Energy Cooperatives’ programs support communications, economic development, strategy execution, community engagement, and residential energy programs.

Sam Houston Electric Cooperative boosts member engagement through the Co-op Connections Card Program, saving members $109,000 in 2012 alone.

We are dedicated to serving members with accountability, integrity, innovation and commitment to community—core values all Touchstone Energy Cooperatives share. To learn more, visit www.touchstoneenergy.coop.
