Looking toward the future, TCEC has invested in its electrical system in recent years and continues to do so today. The local electric cooperative has made improvements to the infrastructure of its system throughout the area it serves because some of it is 70 years old. By building innovative substations with newer technology, the cooperative is serving the needs of its members for years to come.

Co-ops help make recreation a reality

Residents in and near Boise City are closer to having a pool again thanks in part to help from two local cooperatives – Panhandle Telephone Cooperative, Inc. (PTCI) and Tri-County Electric Cooperative (TCEC). They came together to donate $5,000 toward a fund to complete Americans with Disabilities Act upgrades at the facility or the splash pad pump house and electrical control building.
