WHAT IS A COOPERATIVE?
An electric cooperative is a utility provider that is owned by the members it serves.
Electric cooperatives were born because investor owned utilities did not think it profitable to run many miles of power lines for few customers in the rural areas.
COOPERATIVE MISSION & OVERVIEW
To provide a quality service (electricity, water, wastewater, Internet) at a reasonable price, bringing vital services to increase both the quality of life and economic health in the Mid- South Synergy service area.
Mid-South Synergy is a member owned, not for profit cooperative. If the coop’s revenues exceed the cost of doing business (expenses), the co-op has earned “margins” (profits). Each year, margins earned are assigned to the coop’s members (based on the usage)
Although headquartered in Navasota, the company has district offices in Montgomery and Huntsville, with 16 substations. The coop now serves customers in Grimes, Montgomery, Madison, Walker, Brazos and Waller counties.
As a member of Mid-South Synergy, you have access to numerous MEMBER BENEFITS
