CVEC's accountability for safeguarding the environment and well-being of the communities we serve has remained steadfast throughout a 70+ year journey marked by evolving regulations, shifting political and cultural landscapes and changing member expectations.
Balancing reliability and affordability is important to our members and continues to be our focus. Our unique member-led governance means the needs of the communities we serve are prioritized first in our decision-making. We understand member expectations will evolve over time. Our pledge is to build on our rich heritage, carefully evaluate the present and continuously prepare to serve members responsibly and with exceptional value into the future.
