Singing River Electric and Cooperative Energy recently donated a collective $5,000 to Jackson County FABLAB to host two STEM education summer camps in 2020.
These summer camps will be held in the East Central community and will reach students located in Hurley, George County and the surrounding area. The funds also allow the mobile FABLAB to visit schools in the East Central community and George County during the school year.
Cooperative Energy’s involvement follows the recent dedication of a new gas-fired engine power plant at its Benndale Station in George County, marking the first electric utility globally to own and place Wärtsilä 31SG engines into commercial operation.
As an electric cooperative, Singing River Electric is member-driven and built by the communities we serve. For more information on how we partner with our communities, visit singingriver.com or join our social media conversations on Facebook/Instagram (SingingRiverElectric) and Twitter (SRECooperative).
Cooperative Energy generates and transmits electricity to 11 member-owned electric distribution cooperatives. Known as the Power of 12, Cooperative Energy and its Member cooperatives work together to provide, safe, reliable and affordable power from the Mississippi Delta to the Coast. The 11 electric cooperatives own and maintain more than 57,000 miles of distribution lines and provide service to approximately 432,000 home and businesses throughout 55 counties.
