Each issue of Indiana Connection is a perfect opportunity to share with members like you the ways in which we’re enhancing security, comfort and convenience through essential services. But nothing can ever replace the connections we can make firsthand in our communities.

This is your co-op, so it’s our obligation to regularly touch base with you as we continue to pursue a fair, flexible energy future and complete fiber-internet access across our service territory. We hosted our Kilowatts & Brats events earlier this year and enjoyed the chance to touch base. But you’ll be able to find us at some upcoming events this summer throughout your communities, and we hope you’ll drop in for discussions with us.


Once again, we’ll have informational booths at fairs in the three primary counties we serve: Fountain (July 14-20), Montgomery (July 14-20) and Tippecanoe (July 21-29). We’ll have a rotation of folks from across our organization at all three fairs, so stop by and say hello.


It’s never too early to get the Annual Meeting on our calendars. This year, we’ll be gathering on Saturday, Sept. 16 at the Tippecanoe County Fairgrounds in Lafayette.

That is, of course, in the dog days of summer. But we’ve found that time of year has worked well for many of you. And if your weekends fill up fast, we’re once again offering our drive-thru edition of the Annual Meeting — where you can cast your vote for board candidates, grab your gift bags and earn your bill credit without even leaving your vehicle. (If you’re interested in running for an open board seat this year, please see this link for more information.)

Look for more details — including event information, biographies for board candidates, and more — in forthcoming editions of Indiana Connection.


As the weather improves and outdoor projects jump to the top of the list, Tipmont reminds you: Always call 811 or visit before digging, no matter how minor your project.

Contacting Indiana 811 to mark public utilities on your property is free (and required by law). Cutting a Tipmont fiber line (or other utility line) if you don’t? Well, that can get costly.

If nothing else: Two business days before you dig, always call 811 or visit
