Survey Coming Soon
Completing Survey Helps With Future Energy Needs For All Our Members
Lincoln Electric will be asking a small random number of our residential members to complete and return a survey about the specifics of your electricity use. If you are to receive a survey, it will appear in late September. If the survey shows up in your mail, please take a few minutes to fill it out and mail it back.
So why are you surveying? This survey is part of an ongoing effort to help us plan for your future energy needs. Your timely input will help with decisions regarding power supply and conservation efforts coordinated both at the cooperative and at the wholesale power supply level.
Remember by completing this survey you are helping in Lincoln Electric's goal to ensure a stable supply of electricity at the lowest rates for all our members.
*This survey is administered by Pacific Northwest Generation Cooperative (PNGC). PNGC Power is a Portland-based electric generation and transmission (G&T) cooperative owned by 15 Northwest electric distribution cooperative utilities. Lincoln Electric is proud to be one of those 15 utilities. By joining with other cooperatives through PNGC, each of the member cooperatives has more options as a group than any one of us could have alone.

Youth Tour to Washington, D.C.
Deadline for 2017 Youth Tour applications is Wednesday, November 30, 2016.
Each June, thousands of students, the children of cooperative members, gather in Washington, D.C. for the Youth Tour. This week is filled with education, history, fun, and friendships. This trip affords these high school youths opportunities to learn firsthand what it is like to be involved in politics, community development and today's social issues. Highlights include meeting with their elected representatives in the U.S. House of Representatives and Senate to discuss the process of government and issues of the day, and increasing their knowledge of cooperative electric utilities and American history.
One lucky Lincoln Electric student† will again be a part of this incredible journey - free of charge*. The selected student will join with other Montana cooperative representatives in Great Falls to begin their journey. From there, it's a flight to Washington, D.C. and jam-packed days of historical landmarks, food, visits with Montana elected representatives, and the chance to get to know fellow students.
As part of Lincoln Electric's cooperative principles, we believe in the education of our members - including our future members. Youth Tour is just another way we can help the youth in our communities have new opportunities to learn and grow. We encourage all eligible students† to submit a completed application (found below or at the office). Good luck!
*LEC's Youth Tour to Washington, D.C. trip begins in Great Falls, Montana. The sponsored student will be responsible for their transportation to and from Great Falls.
†Certain eligibility requirements apply; please see attached application packet.
