New Headquarters- 9-28-2016

The Egyptian Electric Cooperative Board of Directors is entering into an agreement with Cooperative member Samron Midwest Contracting of Murphysboro to build a new corporate headquarters south of the intersection of Route 4 and Route 13/127. The new facility will replace the current Murphysboro facility, and a portion of the Steeleville facility. It has been decided to retain the Steeleville site as an operations center. As it has always been, electric service for all of our members and the cost to our members throughout the entire service area will continue to be of the highest priority.
