Dear New Trico Business Member:
I'm pleased to welcome you as a new Member of Trico Electric Cooperative, a not-for-profit electric utility that's been serving Southern Arizona since 1945. Our mission is to provide safe, reliable electricity that optimizes benefits to our Members and their communities.
In the coming months, you're going to notice that Trico operates a little differently from other utilities. Unlike investor-owned power companies, Trico is owned by its customers, whom we call Members. As a Member and an owner of our Cooperative, you have a say in how we operate. The Trico Board of Directors, which is nominated and elected by the Membership, guides all Trico’s business decisions and has a direct impact on the Company’s direction and focus. As a member of Trico Electric, you may choose to run for a seat on the Board of Directors or take part in one of Trico's many events and activities.
I encourage you to take a moment to review this website, which was designed specifically with our businesses in mind. It outlines Trico's business operations and provides more detail about the programs and services we offer. You will also find the contact information of our commercial accounts staff, who are dedicated to addressing any concerns or issues you may have.
Once again, it's my pleasure to welcome you to the Trico family and I hope I have the opportunity to meet with you at a future Cooperative event or Annual Meeting. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or by telephone at (520)744-2944.
