Village Energy Cooperative, a non-profit member owned natural gas cooperative, was formed by a group of proactive residence who wanted to utilize natural gas within their community. Formed in 1996 Village Energy contracted Utility Pipeline Ltd, and began working together to provide residence of Lake Mohawk in Carroll County Ohio with natural gas.
Since that time Utility Pipeline Ltd has remained Village Energy’s primary contractor and has helped them expand within Ohio. In 1998 Village Energy, under the management of UPL, began construction on over 70,000 feet of pipeline to bring natural gas service to the communities of Lindsey and Hessville, located in Sandusky, Ohio. Currently Village Energy supplies natural gas service to over 1,350 endusers in Ohio. Some of the larger communities served are Lake Mohawk in Malvern, Ohio, Lindsey, Oh, Hessville, Oh, and Holiday Lake, located in Willard Ohio.
From inception Village Energy Cooperative has worked hard to ensure all decisions have been made in the best interest of the members. Governed by an elected board of cooperative members, all high level decisions such as new project construction, gas purchasing, etc., are made by the elected board members. Any member of the cooperative, in good standing, can run for the board.
The operations of Village Energy Cooperative are managed by Utility Pipeline Ltd and governed by the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio and the Department of Transportation. Under the management of UPL, Village Energy Cooperative remains focused on maintaining and operating natural gas pipelines at the highest standards to provide safe, reliable, service, as inexpensively as possible.
