Creating energy for your education
MTE serves our members with more than just electricity. We're committed to providing information and education to our members and their families in a variety of ways. Our community outreach team works with schools, parents, and students to provide engaging and unique learning experiences. From extracurricular programs like the Washington Youth Tour and the Youth Leadership Summit to in-school presentations on safety and electric generation, MTE provide opportunities to make your life better through education.
Innovative engagement with our members
Building on the fundamental cooperative principle of making a significant and positive impact in the communities MTE serves.
While the primary mission of the electric cooperative is to deliver reliable and affordable power, its secondary mission has always been to make a difference in the communities it serves.
In the 1930s it was going from community to community teaching farmers and homeowners how to use electrical appliances. In the 1960s we began working with local high schools in the Washington Youth Tour program. In the 1970s it was developing energy conservation programs.
The cooperative has focused attention on the largest community-impact effort it has ever undertaken with the formation of SharingChange which has now donated more than $10 million to local non-profits. SharingChange is also the avenue through which the cooperative assists worthy community causes and families in emergency situations.
We serve to make life better for our members through positive community impact. To learn more about how we are engaging our community, contact Jay Sanders for more information.
Ensuring everyone gets home safe
The mission of Middle Tennessee Electric is to provide affordable, reliable, safe electricity, and outstanding member service. A key component of that mission is safety, and it’s something MTEMC takes very seriously. With thousands of miles of electric line in four counties, we make it a priority to educate the communities we serve about power line safety.
