Delta-Montrose Electric Association (DMEA) is seeking a highly motivated individual to become part of our forward-thinking electric cooperative.
DMEA is a member-owned and locally controlled rural electric cooperative with more than 100 employees who are proud to serve more than 28,000 members. One of the cooperative principles central to DMEA is Concern for Community. Though this comes in many forms, the most fundamental, and fulfilling, is honoring the principle of investing in our future generations. Every year, DMEA invests in the success of future generations by donating tens of thousands of dollars to youth organizations, child advocacy groups, extracurricular activities, music and the arts, and mental health organizations. As the local electric co-op, DMEA knows its purpose goes beyond providing safe, affordable, and reliable electricity—and extends to improving the quality of life in the communities it serves. That commitment led DMEA to launch Elevate Fiber in 2016, a local fiber internet company that provides the fastest, most reliable internet to the citizens of the local communities.
Montrose is a beautiful Western Colorado community that sits at an elevation of 5,794 feet and is nestled within easy reach of a selection of vacation experiences. As the locals say, “Stay here. Play everywhere.” With the plummeting depths of the Black Canyon National Park just to the east, the towering and majestic San Juan Mountains to the south, the expansive Uncompahgre Plateau to the west, the lake-bejeweled Grand Mesa to the north, and an expansive water sports park right in the middle of town, Montrose is literally surrounded by an endless variety of prospects for exploration and adventure.
