We’ll be there, no matter what

As I write this, we're in unprecedented and uncertain times. The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has affected so many of our longstanding institutions and disrupted daily life for all of us. In the case of Tipmont and Wintek, our delivery of critical infrastructure makes our responsibility to the communities we serve more important now than ever.

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.

Will your next vehicle be electric?

Electric vehicles (EVs) have a long and complicated history. The first electric car debuted in the U.S. around 1890. It was a six-passenger vehicle with a top speed of about 14 miles per hour. By the early 20th century, many taxis in New York City were electric.

By the mid- 1930s, electric vehicles had mostly vanished.

Why are we here?

Why are we here?

We recently received a heartwarming note via our Facebook page:

“I’m not sure who the gentleman was at McDonald’s, but the side of his truck said Tipmont REMC. He helped me and my daughter and I'd just like to say it really made our day. My daughter started crying and said there are still people out there that care.”

When we first announced our broadband project in February 2018, the reaction from our membership was a mixture of excitement and disappointment.

5G: Is it a threat to fiber?

5G: Is it a threat to fiber?

I’ve been asked a few times how the fiber lines we’re building today will stand up to the promises of tomorrow’s wireless internet technology. While there are a lot of technological promises on the horizon, we can’t know for certain how they are all going to play out. Here are some things we do know today about one of the leading contenders.
