Wintek Powered by Tipmont Fiber Build Update

Wintek Powered by Tipmont Fiber Build Update

2019 was a phenomenal first year

We connected more than 700 new Wintek customers throughout the Linden and Battle Ground build areas, far ahead of our original business plan projections. What’s more, 500 are in our queue and more than 6,500 people have registered their interest in Wintek powered by Tipmont internet service at join.wintek.com. Make sure you’re signed up, especially if you live in one of the current or 2020 build areas so we can keep you informed of our progress.

2019 Reliability Report

2019 Reliability Report

It’s always interesting to look back and compare our reliability data from year to year. In 2019, our top outage causes were power supply, trees and equipment failure, which is consistent with every other year going all the way back to 2012. Of those three, power supply (also known as transmission) comprised over 51% of total member minutes out.

Electricity: A good value

Effective Jan. 22, Tipmont’s energy charge will increase from $0.1034 per kWh to $0.1054 per kWh and the service charge will increase from $32.50 per month to $34.50 per month. For the average residential consumer, this equals about $4.75 per month

Banh Mi and You — A Perfect Combo

Why is it that farmers’ markets always feel the farthest away in February? No matter what the groundhog says, we’re only weeks away from strolling in the sunshine for fresh, local fare. But February is definitely a gut-wrenching gauntlet of sizable snowfall and sub-zero temperatures.

Looking for a Career? Explore a Bundle of Energy Programs

What does energy technology entail, exactly? John Roudebush hears that a lot when discussing the courses he teaches as Ivy Tech Lafayette’s Energy Technology program chair.

"We look at how wind and solar power can complement the use of natural gas," Roudebush says of the program, which started in 2010 shortly after wind farms opened in Tippecanoe and White counties. "But it boils down to letting people know this is an industry with future-proofed careers."

Capital credits coming in January 2020

The Tipmont REMC board of directors authorized a capital credit retirement for members that received service in 1987. The capital credits reflect those members’ contribution of capital to, and ownership of, the cooperative during those years. Those funds helped us build and maintain a reliable electric distribution system and cover emergency expenses.

The young lady featured on the cover of this month’s magazine was selected for Tipmont’s Youth Tour delegation last summer. The photo was taken at the Newseum, an exhibit that promotes the importance of a free press and the First Amendment. The balcony on the seventh floor looks right down Pennsylvania Avenue at the U.S. Capitol. It’s just one awe-inspiring sight in a week of life-altering experiences that Tipmont is proud to sponsor each year.
