   Saving Energy - Even In the Summer Heat

Staying cool during the summer can use a lot of electricity, but TVEC has resources to help you find ways to maintain efficiency and lower energy usage. Just as in the winter, sealing air leaks, maintaining air conditioning equipment and adjusting your thermostat appropriately make the biggest impact. Check out this Home Energy Savings Guide for more ideas and tips.

    Home Energy Audits

As a special service to our members, we offer free Home Energy Audits. Upon request, trained TVEC personnel will visit your home and offer advice on ways you can improve the management of your energy usage. If you are interested in this valuable service, call our Member Service Department toll-free at 800-766-9576 for an appointment. We will be happy to explain the details.

Two Henderson County teens are set to start summer with the trip of a lifetime after winning Trinity Valley Electric Cooperative’s 2017 Government-in-Action Youth Tour contest.

Luis Suarez of Brownsboro High School and Klayton House of Athens High School were selected out of entries from around the TVEC service area for the nine-day trip to Austin and Washington, D.C.

Suarez and House will join more than 140 Texas students, and more than 1,500 students from around the nation for educational opportunities, meetings with government officials, group activities and monument visits during the trip.

Suarez noted that, as a representative of our area, he would focus on the positive aspects of life that he has seen here.

“There is no better place to live than east Texas,” he said.  “The people, the atmosphere and the cooperation are unbeatable.”

TVEC Public Relations Manager Bobbi Byford, who will act as a chaperone for the trip, noted that the winners’ futures may be shaped by the experience.

“As in the past, we have two great young people to go on this trip,” Byford said. “The enthusiasm and excitement from these two young men tells me they will gain a lot from the hands-on learning and opportunities, and bring a lot of that back as they become leaders in their schools and communities.”
