On Friday, July 9, Alfalfa Electric Cooperative was finally able to have its Open House. Unfortunately, COVID delayed the scheduling of the Open House at an earlier date. After viewing the building for over a year from the outside, members were interested to see what was inside the building. AEC linemen greeted attendees in the parking lot and directed them to the front lobby. Golf carts were available to shuttle people back and forth. Employees greeted small groups and began the grand tour. The guests learned a variety of information about the construction of the building and some of the advantages of the new complex.
Following the tour, guests were treated with a new AEC cap and writing pen. The last stop on the tour was the vehicle storage building where lunch was served. AEC employees prepared and served hotdogs and hamburgers to members and visitors that came to AEC’s special event.
Alfalfa Electric Cooperative CEO and General Manager Greg Goetz shared his thoughts following the Open House. “We are excited to be able to showcase our new facility to our members today. This facility allows us to utilize today’s technology to better serve our members’ needs. The new building project was a huge undertaking for our Board of Trustees, staff, and employees. This new headquarters adds a new chapter to the history of Alfalfa Electric Cooperative, and I am proud to be a part of it.”
