The Co-op Connections program offers co-op member-owners and employees product and service discounts at participating retail businesses. In turn, participating local businesses benefit from increased customer traffic, and from promotions in co-op communications and advertising materials.
Member-owners have three ways to save: the Co-op Connections card, connections.coop website and the Co-op Connections app.
Our Energy Efficiency fact sheets & brochures are designed to position your co-op as your members’ source of power and information. Utilize the print materials to effectively stand as an energy expert.
