Welcome Back Legislators!
Staff and members of Clarke Electric Cooperative Board of Directors joined nearly 200 directors, managers and employees from electric cooperatives across Iowa to help welcome back Iowa's legislators for the 2020 Legislative Session. 

A Good Review is a Worthwhile Exercise by Dave Opie, General Manager
Now that it's February, all the cooperative's books for 2019 have been closed. It is time to review how we measured up. As you know, many things outside of our control can impact the numbers - the biggest being the weather. Only Mother Nature has the power to delay our workplan and prevent us from completing some of our construction and maintenance projects. 

Win A Free Trip! 
High school juniors in the Clarke Electric service territory are encouraged to apply for a once-in-a-lifetime all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C. as part of Youth Tour. 

Clarke Electric Yard Clearance Guidelines
Clarke Electric Cooperative continues to advance our mission of safety driven, energy smart and community invested. We spend a lot of time and resources to keep power lines free from trees and underbrush. 

Safety Driven: Stay Safe in Winter Weather
It's Iowa, so it shouldn't be surprising when winter hits with a bang. And boy, did it hit us hard in the middle of January! Fortunately,the cooperative sustained very few outages during the storm, thanks to the diligence of our right of way maintenance efforts and upgrading aged electric lines. 

The Cooperative Difference: Membership Pays
Being a member-consumer of an electric cooperative pays in dividends, literally. If you have been a long-time member and consumed electricity from Clarke Electric,you are most likely receiving a patronage dividend, or paymetn for being a member. Sometimes we forget about the "perks" of cooperative membership.
