Economic Development

Polk-Burnett Electric Cooperative supports economic development in its service territory.

We believe economic development leads to:

  1. An improved standard of living for co-op members.
  2. A  better financial future for the cooperative.

Polk-Burnett will promote economic development initiatives to:

  1. Develop and diversify energy sales.
  2. Create and maintain local jobs.

Economic development includes timely and consistent financing opportunities. Financing is intended to: 

  1. Supplement, not compete, with private lenders.
  2. Generate a beneficial return on investments, with minimum risk to co-op members.

Polk-Burnett is proud to be a member of:

  1. Polk County Economic Development Corporation
  2. Burnett County Development Association
