REC Hosts Second Telephone Town Hall Meeting of 2019
Fredericksburg, Va. - On Tuesday, August 27, REC hosted a Telephone Town Hall event. REC invited a random sample of 50,000 member-owners to participate in the call. Nearly 5,000 members accepted the call to participate.
Kent Farmer, President and CEO, answered questions live during the event that lasted just over an hour. At the conclusion of the call, over 40 voicemails were left for follow-up questions.
The topics members asked about were solar power, electric rates, energy efficiency, broadband, reliability, Cooperative Sunshare and electricity rates.
REC hosts these opportunities for member-owners to be able to ask questions directly to our President and CEO. Over the next week, members who did not have their questions answered live and those who left a voicemail will receive follow-up calls from REC's management team and others.
Members who missed the call can listen to the recording in the Newsroom on the REC website: https://www.myrec.coop/newsroom/TTHAUGUST2019.cfm .
