The harvest season has wrapped-up for most and the reports I have heard say it was
a good harvest both in bushels and price. Those of you drying corn saw increased
kilowatt-hour usage but with the cooler temps, demand and kilowatt-hour sales will
decrease for a few months before the heating season begins. Unfortunately, the cold
winter months in our region typically result in rising power bills as the heating
system works to keep our homes warm and comfortable.
I am happy to report that Jason Bare has been promoted to serve as the new line superintendent
at Brown-Atchison. Jason began working for your cooperative in 2006 as an apprentice
lineman and is looking forward to working with the members on their needs.
As always, I want to take time to thank all of our veterans for what they do and
have done. Many sacrifices have been made so we all can enjoy the many freedoms we
have living in this country. I wish to say “Happy Thanksgiving” and “Thank You” to
all our members and employees; thank you members for your support and the employees
for your hard work throughout the year. For me, there are many things to be grateful
for and I am thankful for all. From all of us at Brown-Atchison Electric, thank you
and Happy Thanksgiving!
