“SOPEC connects us all in a way we may not even be cognizant of — through our electricity. The contact may not be face-to-face, but it is there and is apparent every time we flip a light switch. I create monthly energy reports for each of the communities SOPEC serves. These reports acknowledge customers for their green electricity usage, share usage patterns and trends, and help SOPEC foster connection with communities in these times where we cannot meet in person. The team at SOPEC has worked hard to help communities be greener, and I am happy to serve alongside them!”
