People Fund supports Caring Hands

The North Central Electric Cooperative People Fund board came to the aid of Caring Hands Pregnancy and Parenting Support, which serves Seneca County.
With the $1,100 grant awarded by the Pewople Fund, Caring Hands is able to provide education on sexual integrity, relationships, and parenting at the high school level for the Hopewell-Loudon School District for the 2018–2019 school year. “Having the opportunity to provide the CARE Program at Hopewell-Loudon gives us a way to proactively address problems we see daily at Caring Hands,” said Carolyn Bouillon, director of Caring Hands.

The power of maintenance

Weather impacts 2017 outage report

The number of outages in 2017 rose nearly 45 percent from 2016, as snow and high winds impacted North Central Electric Cooperative’s statistics.

The board of trustees reviewed the annual outage summary at its February meeting, which showed maintenance efforts and technology enhancements are paying dividends when it comes to providing reliable service. 

The 254 outages were two shy of NCE’s 10-year average. Weather-related issues caused nearly half of the outages.
