Anyone needing to schedule a pickup of a water heater or parts should call ahead.

Traverse Electric Annual Meeting Date Set


Traverse Electric Cooperative’s 80th Annual Meeting has been rescheduled for Monday, July 27, 2020.

The board of directors of Traverse Electric Cooperative approved the rescheduling of this year’s annual meeting to be held at the office of the cooperative in a “Drive-thru” format. Members will register and receive a gift, ballots for bylaw and director elections, and $40 in vouchers to be used at participating area businesses or as an electric bill credit (limit one gift and $40 in vouchers per member). Do this all without having to leave your vehicle!  No food will be served.  All registered members will be put in the drawings for door prizes too.  Winners will be contacted at a later date.  

Districts up for director election for a 3 year term this year are Districts 1 (Tom Frisch), 4 (Doug Diekmann), and 7 (Mark Pearson).  Members from these districts will receive ballots when registering.  All members will receive an annual meeting program booklet, which includes the proposed bylaw amendments and a ballot to vote on the bylaw amendments. 

More annual meeting information will be sent out with the June 30, 2020 billing statements, on Facebook, our website at, and in area newspapers in July.
