Investing in Tomorrow: Preparing for a brighter future

Krum Service Center - July 6, 2023

FROM THE TOOLS, equipment and training for Operations crews to the Academic Initiatives in the schools and the CoServ Charitable Foundation grants, everything CoServ did in 2023 allowed us to invest in our Members, Customers and communities we serve.

CoServ’s investment ensures reliable electricity for your air conditioner when it’s 110 degrees outside. That your heater has ample natural gas pressure during a cold snap. A future leader receives a scholarship to help support their future endeavor to attend college. Or a nonprofit grant allows a charity to expand the number of people it can help.

To wrap up 2023, we’re taking a look back at the investments we made and how those will continue paying dividends for years to come.

Thank you for allowing us to continue to serve you.

▶ Infrastructure & Technology

The most visible investment is the new CoServ Service Facility that will open just south of Krum in the first quarter of 2024. The new building positions CoServ Operations crews closer to the western half of our service area, which will result in faster response times during electric and gas outages. And our Operations crews are always adding capacity to power lines, upgrading gas lines and installing new technology on our systems to improve reliability and outage response times.

▶ CoServ in the Community

Evidence of CoServ's investment in the community can be found throughout North Texas. You'll spot us at community events where we visit with Members and Customers and give away prizes, awarding grants to first responders and nonprofits and delivering air conditioners, fans, heaters and blankets to social service agencies, just to name a few.

▶ Employee Investment

None of this would be possible without CoServ's 520-plus Employees, who represent our most valuable investment. From the new-hire onboarding to continuous training and opportunities for advancement, CoServ Employees strive to provide our Members and Customers with outstanding service and reliable electricity and natural gas.

So, as we close out 2023, we’d like to take a moment to say thank you. We look forward to continuing to serve you with safe and reliable energy solutions and doing our part to help empower North Texas communities while investing in tomorrow.
