The Touchstone Energy brand represents a nationwide alliance of 750 local, consumer-owned electric cooperatives in 46 states. Championing the cause for lowest-cost, democratically governed energy, Touchstone Energy provides a unified face for the small businesses that own and service rural America’s 2.5 million miles of power line. Co-ops that become members of the Touchstone brand gain access to a wealth of advertising stock, education and training tools, member benefit programs, and web development resources. By working jointly, the network of small cooperatives that make up Touchstone Energy generate services that would normally require the resources of a national corporation. The Touchstone branding communicates world-class quality and consistent standards of excellence wherever it is seen.
