Ways Cooperatives Grow

October is National Co-op Month, and Petit Jean Electric Cooperative is joining cooperatives across the U.S. to celebrate. Co-ops come in all shapes and sizes, but they each have a common goal: to provide goods or services for the members of the co-op.

Electric co-ops exist to serve our members. Our priority is to provide reliable, affordable and responsible energy to our local communities. Because we are led by you, the members we serve, we can evolve to meet your needs such as reliable internet service.

This October, as we celebrate Co-op Month, we’re focusing on the ways “Co-ops Grow” for our members.

Co-ops Grow for You: You are our purpose. Our members are why we were formed many years ago to fulfill a uniquely local purpose. It’s why we built Petit Jean Fiber to better serve your needs. We’ve come a long way since then, and your needs continue to evolve. That’s why we’ll never stop growing for you!

Co-ops Grow Communities: Co-ops help communities grow by fostering community engagement and supporting the unique needs of co-op members by building Petit Jean Fiber. Concern for Community is one of our core principles, and being community-focused is essential to everything we do.

Co-ops Grow Together: Co-ops are all about cooperation, not competition. That’s why electric coops work together to share lessons learned, successful strategies and better ways to serve our members. We’re better when we grow together!

Co-ops Grow Tomorrow’s Leaders: Electric co-ops serve as fertile ground for growing tomorrow’s leaders through a variety of youth engagement programs. Whether through school demonstrations, community events or the Electric Cooperative of Arkansas Youth Tour program, we’re committed to providing opportunities for local youth to learn and thrive in our community and beyond.

Electric co-ops exist to serve our members.  Providing our members with affordable, reliable
and responsible power is a priority for employees
at Petit Jean Electric.
