Rural Missouri - January 2020 - 17

exist previously. That includes working with the Missouri Partnership,
the Missouri Department of Economic
Development's marketing arm, which
is excited about the research the
cooperatives have provided.
Associated's new economic development focus kicked off in 2017. The
five-year program sent a strong signal
to those involved in job creation that
Associated is serious about helping
them help their communities. The
need for such a program came from
dire statistics for many rural Missouri
counties. At the time, 52 of the state's
114 counties had lost jobs and population since 2007. Another 25 counties gained population - but not jobs.
Power4Progress was designed
to offer extensive tools to help economic development professionals at
rural electric cooperatives help their
communities. It includes specialized
training to help recruit new industries or work with existing employers
on expansion.

It also includes access to the Location One Information System that
can be used to list sites and buildings
available to prospective businesses.
Associated staff can consult with
electric cooperatives and offer advice
on reaching out to new prospects
while providing research for business
recruitment.
In return for its investment, Associated hopes to see new load growth
that will help member cooperatives
grow. One such effort involves electric vehicles. Identified as a potential
source for new load in rural areas,
electric vehicles are becoming more
common for rural transportation.
Associated is helping cost share
electric vehicle purchase with cooperatives to demonstrate operating efficiencies of zero-emission vehicles.
Soon electric cooperatives will
roll out a new online product called
ChooseEV. "It will provide each participating distribution cooperative
information for their website with

several tools to compare mileage,
fuel savings, incentives and models
of electric vehicles," Mark says. "We
hope to position cooperatives ahead
of the curve so members can look to
their co-op as a viable source of information to make a decision on whether an EV is right for them or not."
The effort also extends to electric
school buses aimed at saving rural
school districts money on both fuel
and maintenance. Two field trips were
hosted in December that showed off
the buses and demonstrated their
features.
As he heads into retirement, Mark
says he has no regrets from his long
career working in the economic development trenches. "You always look
back and think, 'that went well, but
could I have done more?' We competed well in many projects. We didn't
win them all, but in my perspective
win or lose, you always learn something. And that's helped get us to
where we are today."
