We're In Good Company
October is National Cooperative Month.
ACE Hardware Corporation, REI, Land O’Lakes and Jackson EMC all share something in common: We’re all cooperatives. Cooperatives are businesses owned by their members, like you.
We may be in different industries, but we all share a passion for serving our members and helping our communities thrive.
As one of 30,000 member-owned cooperatives nationwide, Jackson EMC is in good company to commemorate National Cooperative Month. We’re one of 895 electric cooperatives serving 42 million consumers in the U.S.
