Flint Energies Turns 75 Years Old

Flint Energies Turns 75 Years Old

 

REYNOLDS/WARNER ROBINS/UPATOI – Flint Energies turns 75 years old today, according to Sr. Vice President Jimmy Autry. The not-for-profit member-owned electric cooperative received its charter from the Rural Electrification Administration (REA) on Apr. 23, 1937.

“Today brings back a lot of great memories,” said Autry. “But the most important memory is that of members working together to create a lasting organization to meet their own needs.”

Celebrating its 75th year of service in 2012 (incorporated in 1937), Flint Energies www.flintenergies.com provides energy services to residential, commercial, industrial and agricultural members in parts of 17 central Georgia counties.

Dooly County's unemployment rate for January was 14.4 percent, the Georgia Department of Labor news release says.
