Clark County REMC is a member-owned electric cooperative headquartered in Sellersburg, Indiana. As a cooperative, Clark County REMC follows seven core principles that are universal to cooperatives worldwide. Among those principles is one stressing education, training and information. Electric Consumer, a monthly magazine published especially for Indiana’s electric cooperative members, is one way the REMC informs and educates its members. Electric Consumer is available not only in a print format, but as an electronic publication for those who prefer getting their information on their electronic devices.

That is why we have built a facility to support your cooperative’s training and skill improvement needs through a variety of programs. Live-line or rubber-glove training allows apprentices to work on energized… Continue reading.
