Eight electric cooperatives including Duck River Electric, the Tennessee Electric Cooperative Association (TECA), The Tennessee Magazine and Touchstone Energy – the national brand of more than 700 electric co-ops — came together in July 2015 to help sponsor and support the 2015 Chapel Hill Lions Club Super Pull of the South.
This was the third year for Touchstone Energy to sponsor the Super Pull. However, there had never before been such a Tennessee electric cooperative presence at the competition. In addition to TECA, which publishes the popular Tennessee Magazine, more than 60 volunteers from electric co-ops across the state will be involved.
Participating electric co-ops included Appalachian EC, New Market; Caney Fork EC, McMinnville; Cumberland EMC, Clarksville; Duck River EMC, Shelbyville; Gibson EMC, Trenton; Meriwether Lewis EC, Centerville; Middle Tennessee EMC, Murfreesboro; and Sequachee Valley EC, South Pittsburg. These eight co-ops provide electricity to more than one-half million households, farms, businesses and industries in the Volunteer State.
