Mark Cayce, CEO of Ouachita Electric Co-op in southern Arkansas provided the keynote address at the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ACEEE) Rural Energy Conference in 2018. Thank you to Appalachian Voices for creating this transcript!
From Cayce: We're "helping our members improve their way of life, at the lowest possible cost available. And we’re in the business of service, not sales. And this is a message that a lot of utilities are struggling with, and having a hard time. But the world is changing. And we’re rocking along and we’re doing pretty well with our energy efficiency programs."
Cayce talks more about OEC's energy efficiency, solar, and broadband programs.
