      Our Mission

      In recent years, we’ve heard a lot about disruptive technologies; innovations that disrupt, or even displace an existing market. Many are saying that the energy sector is on the cusp of significant transformation – alternatives to coal and natural gas, advancements in battery technology and changes in regulation and government policy.

      Tipmont’s mission is larger than simply providing distributed electric services. Offering member choice in energy services is an important element to consider. We took action by launching the first community solar array in the state of Indiana.

      Our mission statement, adopted in late 2014, is:

      Empower our communities by providing state-of-the-art essential services.

      What our mission statement means

      • EMPOWER

        Empower means to provide our members with the tools to succeed. Our services should enable our members and our communities to pursue their goals, to tee them up for success.

      • OUR COMMUNITIES

        The word community conveys Tipmont’s leadership role beyond just our members. Tipmont can make meaningful, and positive change through economic development efforts, education and outreach.

      • WITH STATE-OF-THE-ART

        Providing state-of-art services means we’re committed to the technologies, skill sets and leadership that our members and our communities desire.

      • ESSENTIAL SERVICES

        Our services aim to support the big three quality of life desires – security, comfort and convenience. We also label Tipmont’s services as "essential" to ensure we stay focused on those services that provide the best value to our members while also staying consistent with our areas of expertise.
