Contributed

Bandera Electric Cooperative is preparing for its 78th Annual Membership Meeting on Saturday, May 20 at Mansfield Park northwest of Bandera. The Annual Meeting is held once a year so members can conduct the business of the cooperative and to recap the activities of the previous year.
This year’s theme is “The Power of Innovation” due to new and cutting-edge ideas BEC is pursuing. The discussion will focus on improvement of operational efficiency, ease of communication and information and alternative energy options.
In addition to the Annual Meeting, BEC will host the second annual Energy and Technology Fair that highlights local businesses. BEC will showcase its own initiatives that include fiber to the home, BEC Solar and community solar. Other exhibits will feature products such as energy-efficient heating and cooling systems, rainwater storage containers, solar pumps, energy-efficient windows and insulation and native Texas plants.
Chief Executive Officer, William Hetherington, encourages all members to “let your voice be heard with your vote and attendance. You will see firsthand how BEC is improving the quality of life in the Hill Country through the power of innovation.”
Admission is free and all members are welcome. Members who register are eligible for door prizes that include a $1,000 gift card. Registration begins at 8 am and the Annual Meeting begins at 10:30 am. The Energy Fair is open from 8 am to 12:30 pm.
