There are many ways to earn a paycheck, but some are more rewarding than others. Here are 10 reasons to consider joining the electric cooperative family.

10. Tech-focused: Rapid advances in renewable generation, energy storage and smart grid technologies will change the way we use electricity. 

9. Business on a human scale: Cooperatives hold themselves to the highest standards while still maintaining a close-knit, family-friendly working environment. Their smaller size and local control also gives co-ops more flexibility to try new ideas to improve the service they provide.

8. Support a clean environment: Electricity is one of our cleanest energy sources, and as technology improves, electric cars, next-generation heating and cooling systems, etc. will reduce our reliance less efficient forms of energy. 

7. Retirement security: Co-op employees deliver a valuable service to their communities, and they’re rewarded for that dedication with outstanding retirement benefits.

6. National reach: America’s 900-plus electric co-ops serve 47 states and 56 percent of our nation’s landmass. So whether you want to stay in your hometown or explore another part of the country, odds are good that there will be an electric co-op nearby.

5. Stability: As our reliance on technology increases, so too will our demand for electricity. As long as we need electricity, we’ll need workers to ensure it is safe, reliable and affordable.

4. Principles, not profit: When you work for an electric co-op, you’re working to serve your friends, family and neighbors who collectively own the co-op.

3. Join a global movement: More than 250 million people around the world earn their living working in co-ops, and generate approximately $2.5 trillion in global economic activity each year.

2. Competitive pay: You’ll enjoy excellent pay and benefits that can help you achieve the American dream.

1. Build a stronger community: Electric co-ops power our homes, schools, farms and businesses, and keep rural America connected to the global economy.
