Dear New Member,

Chris Chastain headshotI am pleased to welcome you as a member and owner of RushShelby Energy. Being a member gives you the opportunity to participate in its governance and share in its success.

Your cooperative has a proud history of providing reliable electric service to rural areas throughout southeast/central Indiana that were once considered too costly to be profitable. Today, even as many of those communities have grown to be regarded as suburban, we remain committed to providing reliable electricity. For over seventy years RushShelby Energy has built its reputation on 4 core values:

  • Service: Our primary goal is that your electricity is available 100% of the time – however, should weather conditions or other circumstances make outages unavoidable, our rapid response system gets your power back on as soon as possible.
  • Integrity: We endeavor to be honest and straightforward in all transactions. We strive to have our actions match our words and to deliver genuine value to members like you.
  • Respect: We honor each person as a unique individual. We also recognize our responsibility to be ever mindful of the impact our actions will have not only today but tomorrow.
  • Caring: We go to extraordinary lengths to meet or exceed your expectations because we genuinely care about you. We are dedicated to providing you excellent service, competitive rates, and cooperative membership value. Our friendly, knowledgeable employees are always prepared to assist you. We are delighted that you are a member of RushShelby Energy and look forward to bringing you the benefits of your cooperative membership.


Christopher M. Chastain, PE
