Keep Informed . . . “LIKE” MEC on Facebook

 

Facebook is a service that makes it easy to connect and share with family and friends online, and millions of people of all ages have an active account.  Facebook has been deemed the world’s most popular social networking website.   Many businesses and other organizations are also on Facebook; Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative (MEC) has had a presence on the site since 2012. 

 

We encourage members of Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative to “like” us on Facebook in order to keep up-to-date on the messages we post.  In case of a power outage, Facebook is a great place to obtain the latest information on the number of members who are without power, the areas that are affected, and when power restoration can be expected.  Other postings on our Facebook page of interest and importance to our members are:

 

* Notifications of planned outages for maintenance work

* Energy saving tips

* Safety tips

* Public service announcements

* Annual Meeting, auction sales, and other miscellaneous information

* How to apply for MEC scholarships

* Office closings for holidays

 

Mecklenburg Electric Cooperative strives to keep members informed using a variety of media. As technology advances and people communicate more and more using social media, we see the need to expand our communication horizons, and we have seen great success in this area.

 

David Lipscomb, vice president of member and energy services, says, “Social media sites, like Facebook, allow MEC to quickly distribute real time information to its entire membership. During a recent substation outage, we were able to communicate hourly updates on the repairs. This kept those directly affected more in the know than ever before.  We were able to speak to hundreds of our members in minutes and still focus on restoring service.”
