      At HomeWorks Tri-County Electric Cooperative, we constantly seek to bring energy, comfort, and communications solutions to our member-owners and customers, to enhance their quality of life. We develop and reward employees who help meet our goals, and we embody the cooperative principles as we work with our partners to fulfill our mission.

      In our culture, we like to try out new ideas and maintain a learning environment. We promote and maintain a safe workplace, encourage leadership and cross-training, and we’re a fun place to work.

      Some history: HomeWorks Tri-County Electric Cooperative has brought electric service to mid-Michigan since 1937. More recently, we have provided propane and high speed satellite internet services to our area. The mission of our 74 full-time and 4 part-time employees, along with our board of directors, is to provide our member-owners and customers with energy, comfort, and communications solutions that will enhance their quality of life. 

      Our reputation for reliability and outstanding customer service is based 80 years of employees committed to building a safe, reliable, customer-friendly utility. Our customer satisfaction scores reflect that, as we perform at the top of our industry in regular surveys. And as a part-owner of Wolverine Power Cooperative, we are one of Michigan’s #RenewableEnergyLeaders.

      Our main office and an operations center are located just west of Portland; we have a second office and operations center at Blanchard. We currently deliver reliable electricity to families and businesses in parts of 13 mid-Michigan counties. Our Tri-County Electric People Fund has returned over $2 million to families and organizations in need across our service area, with funds donated by members who round up their monthly electric bills. We also took part in Michigan’s Partners for Power program in 2015, sending linemen to a remote mountain village in Guatemala to help the village bring electricity to their homes.

We currently have no open positions. Thank you for your interest!
