Southeastern belongs to an alliance of more than 750 Touchstone Energy cooperatives in 46 states. Touchstone Energy provides a unified face for the small business that own and service rural America’s 2.5 million miles of power line. By working jointly, this network of small co-ops generate services that would normally require the resources of a national corporation.
Touchstone Energy co-ops are owned by the members they serve and are committed to providing reliable electricity at the lowest price possible. In short, co-ops “look out” for the members they serve.
