Trico Electric Cooperative customers facing financial hardship during the COVID-19 pandemic can now look to the power company for assistance in paying their bill after the creation of the COVID-19 Assistance Program.

“As a non-profit, member-owned utility, putting our members first is a guiding principle that has never been more important than it is now,” said Trico CEO and General Manager Vincent Nitido. “We will continue to support our membership and the communities we serve throughout this crisis.”
