ItÂâ€Ã¢„¢s hard to believe that just from 70 years before, the company has live many of the areas presently had no possibility of accessing electric to service their businesses, farms and homes. In 1935 Electrification Administration was establishment by President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The company has intuitiveness of 62 farmers electricity was eventually made available through a series of events, which ultimately laid the foundation for The Frontier Power Company. 
 
The Frontier Power Company is still member owned, with each member of the cooperative having the right to vote for their Board of Directors at the annual meeting in mid of each year. The companyÂâ€Ã¢„¢s any profits over and above the cost of bringing electricity to customer are returned to customer, the member, in the form of capital credits. The Frontier Power Company now serves over 8,500 accounts bringing electricity with efficient service to the rural areas of the 7 counties it serves. 
 
Every month, the customer bill is figured based on the number of kilowatts used.  Bills are figured around the 20th and printed and mailed out by the 25th. The customer bill should arrive the 27th of every month. Bills are always due the 1st of every month, with a grace period through the 10th of each month.  After the 10th, a 5 percent penalty will apply to customer account.
 
The company has currently nearly 600 Touchstone energy cooperatives in 44 states, and serving over 17 million customers daily.  In 1998 Touchstone Energy was originally formed by 46 cooperatives across the country.  It is an alliance of local, consumer owned utilities across the country committed and dedicated to providing better service at reasonable price to all customers, large and small.  This allowed the local cooperatives to successfully face deregulation and competition, effectively use new technology to the co-opsÂâ€Ã¢„¢ advantage, and communicate the strengths of a cooperative.
 
Frontier Power cannot guarantee that customer will have a regular supply of electric, especially during severe storms, which seem to have plagued their service area over the last year.  When calling Frontier Power to report an outage, it is important to be brief and have customer information ready before placing the call.
