Salem Electric held its 2022 Annual Membership Meeting via webinar on Tuesday, May 3.

During the event, board president Dave Bauer spoke about Salem Electric’s growth over the past 80 years and how SE grew from 22 members to over 19,000. This growth was accomplished while maintaining exceptional levels of member satisfaction. 

General manager Tony Schacher reviewed the five goals that guide SE’s business decisions and summarized employee efforts in achieving those goals. He shared the need for additional storage of materials and potential upgrades to our 50-year-old building. 

Looking to the future, Tony covered the importance of the hydroelectric dams of the Columbia River System. They are vital in providing a steady reliable source of renewable carbon-free power to the Pacific Northwest.
