As an electric cooperative, Berkeley Electric is committed to serving its communities. We view supporting education as a vital part of enhancing the lives of those we serve. We offer scholarships and grants to local students and teachers as well as provide classroom demonstrations on electrical safety. We are strong supporters of STEM education and actively participate in career days and career academies at area schools.
