South Central Power Company is a member-owned electric cooperative serving more than 120,000 residential, commercial and industrial customers in 24 Ohio counties. We maintain more than 12,000 miles of energized power lines. The Cooperative is a private enterprise owned and operated by the people it serves. The members elect an 11-member Board of Trustees that govern the co-op. The Board establishes policies, reviews co-op activities, and makes needed decisions. They hire a President and CEO who in turn hires a staff of employees to carry out the policies and operate and maintain the co-op’s lines and equipment.
In 1998, South Central Power Company became a Touchstone Energy Cooperative allowing us to be identified as part of a nationwide alliance of independently owned and operated electric cooperatives under a single brand identity. As a Touchstone Energy Cooperative, South Central Power Company has recommitted itself to principles we’ve operated under for years: integrity, accountability, innovation and community spirit.
Cooperatives of all types and sizes abide by seven unifying principles, which differentiate them from other types of companies. Those principles are: Volun...tary & open membership, Democratic member control, Member economic participation, Autonomy and independence, Education, training and information, Cooperation among cooperatives, and Concern for community.
