Inspired by the mission of Urban Agrarian, this month’s recipes feature fresh, locally available ingredients that are full of flavor and nutrients.
This month, many students and teachers will return to the classroom after an extended break from school. For those who are looking to maintain a healthy diet to keep their immune systems strong, or those hoping to lose a few “quarantine pounds,” being prepared with healthy meals can help.
Dreaming of a tropical getaway? While it might not be advisable to travel right now, you can bring some of the flavors of a beach-side vacation to your home with this month’s recipes.
As hot weather rolls in, it’s a great time to grill out. Not only is grilling the perfect starting place for a delicious meal, it can also help reduce your energy usage. Grilling keeps the summer heat outside—where it belongs, and, since dinner takes place during peak energy hours, cooking outdoors can benefit your electric bill.

Oklahoma’s electric cooperatives are fully committed to the communities they serve. That means not only keeping the lights on, but also lending a hand to neighbors in times of need.
More than 70 students were chosen to represent Oklahoma in Washington, D.C., this summer. Although the event was cancelled due to COVID-19 concerns, Oklahoma’s electric co-ops are proud of each young person selected for this honor. #PowerOn

If there’s one challenge that electric cooperatives are all too familiar with, it is the challenge of rebuilding electric infrastructure following natural disasters and extreme weather events. Since electric cooperatives serve primarily rural areas with sparse populations, they cover more ground and maintain more miles of line than other electric utilities.
Every October, cooperatives from various sectors celebrate National Cooperative Month and the impact cooperatives make in our nation, state, and communities. At the core of this annual celebration is a recognition of the cooperative difference, which makes electric cooperatives stand out from other types of utilities and serves as the foundation for a time-tested business model. National Co-op Month is an opportunity to remind co-op consumer-members as well as the general public about the value and purpose of cooperatives.
