Adams Electric to begin helicopter patrols

Adams Electric plans to start patrolling its overhead distribution lines and equipment this week in portions of upper Franklin and lower Cumberland counties that are served by the cooperative. As the weather permits, the aerial inspections will continue until the process is also completed in Adams and York counties.

The cooperative has conducted aerial inspections every year since 1996. Critical overhead lines that feed power to the co-op’s substations and metering points will be inspected, as well as overhead lines and equipment.

Meet the Candidates

The Credentials & Election Committee has certified three candidates to run for three open seats on the Adams Electric board of directors. This year, two incumbent directors went through the process to be nominated, as did a member living in the Glenville area of Zone 5.

Qualified members living in Zones 1, 5 and 8 were eligible to run for the open positions on the co-op’s nine-member board. Dale E. Myers is running for the open seat being vacated by outgoing director William “Bill” Myers, who has been a director since 2009.

Adams returns $1.75 in Ownership Rewards

This month the board of directors for Adams Electric Cooperative is returning $1.75 million in Ownership Rewards to 32,500 current and former members, raising the total amount given back to members to almost $43 million for all retirement years.

Ownership Rewards, also known as patronage capital credits, is a benefit of being an owner of an electric cooperative. For more than 50 of the co-op’s 75 years, members have received a return or “reward” on their investment in Adams Electric based upon their “patronage” or use of electricity the co-op delivers.
