May Is National Electrical Safety Month

We use electricity every day. This invisible force has become so commonplace that it can be all too easy to overlook possible electrical hazards, even in the safety of our own homes. May is National Electrical Safety Month and a good time to put the most important safety tool you have—your brain—to work.

2018 annual meeting scheduled

7 p.m. Friday, April 6
Huntingdon Area High School
2400 Cassady Avenue
Huntingdon, PA

Valley Rural Electric Cooperative operates according to democratic principles. Unlike private power companies, cooperatives are owned by their consumers, who choose representatives to run their business.

On Friday, April 6, 2018, Valley REC members will have the opportunity to use their voices and vote when Valley Rural Electric holds its annual meeting. The event is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. in the auditorium of the Huntingdon Area High School.
