A Brief History of Knox Energy Cooperative
In April of 1998, a group of civic-minded community leaders from Apple Valley Lake formed Knox Energy Cooperative Association, Inc. (Knox Energy). It was created for the purpose of providing natural gas service to the lake community after many failed attempts to obtain service from the local utility companies. Knox Energy successfully contracted with Utility Pipeline Ltd for engineering, construction and operational services to provide natural gas as well as financing without additional mandatory community fees or assessments. After meetings and discussions with the residents of Apple Valley and a voluntary membership drive, the new natural gas pipeline system was installed and service to members on the west side of the lake began in January of 1999.
Over the last 18 years, Knox Energy Cooperative and Utility Pipeline Ltd have successfully brought natural gas service to over 45,000 residential and commerical customers throughout Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia. Creativng long term value for our endusers by delivering safe natural gas service as economically as possible.
