Co-Mo Electric is preparing to celebrate 75 years of operation. The official celebration will take place at its annual meeting in May. CEO and General Manager Ken Johnson says this is an exciting time to be part of the cooperative and adds that to be able to look back and see where they’ve been makes it all the more exciting to look ahead and see where they’re going. In preparation for the event, the Cooperative has compiled a history book that will be given away at no cost to members who register at the meeting. The book delves into the origin of the cooperative and the struggles it faced to become one of the most technologically advanced cooperatives in the country. Co-Mo Electric was founded in 1939 and provides service to customers across central Missouri. Its service area comprises approximately 23-hundred square miles.
