When Should I Report An Outage

During severe storms, it’s best to wait a few minutes before you call

When Should I Report An Outage

In late January and early February, severe winter storms caused several extended outages on our system. While we always want to hear from you when your power is out, it’s often best to wait a few minutes before reporting your outage.

Jerry Peevler: 1949-2020

Jerry Peevler: 1949-2020

New Year’s Eve of 2020, the year like no other, delivered one last blow to the entire Tipmont family with the passing of our board chairman Jerry Peevler. Jerry served on the board since 2007, most recently as our chairman and Wabash Valley director.

We fought for you

We fought for you

When we originally announced our fiber internet build at our July 2018 Annual Meeting, the initial reaction was open applause. State-of-the-art broadband service is finally coming to rural areas! But, when I shared our timeline of eight years, that applause quickly became disillusionment.

A 'Hoosier' Thank You

Innovation requires both courage and compassion. It takes courage because there is no guarantee that the new thing you're trying to do will succeed. But true innovation – something beyond mere change – also requires compassion, the belief that this success should be shared by everyone, not just a select few.

Our dedication to you

On the evening of August 10, severe storms with high winds rolled through our service territory. At one point, over 10,000 homes were out of power, over 40% of our total membership. The response of our team was nothing short of heroic.

Serving Our Community

My article last month centered on Indiana’s utility disconnect moratorium and Tipmont’s commitment to help those of you who are struggling with unemployment, reduced hours, or furloughs from the COVID-19 pandemic. The moratorium expiration date was extended to Aug. 14 after the July Indiana Connection deadline and may be extended further if COVID-19 cases continue to increase. 

If you need help with your bill...

We live and work in this community and when you struggle, we all struggle.

Last month, I shared that our board of directors decided to postpone the 2020 Annual Meeting, originally scheduled for Saturday, July 25. We’re all hoping that the pandemic continues to ebb, but the safety of each member we serve will always be our primary consideration.
