Videos about Central Electric

  •   Thanksgiving community service project
    Thanksgiving is about being thankful for what we are blessed with and giving back to those in our community who may be without. Leading up to Thanksgiving, we offered a helping hand to the great folks at the West Chatham Food Pantry in Siler City. We provided entire thanksgiving meals to 50 families in need across Chatham County. A special thank you to all the volunteers at the West Chatham Food Pantry. They were a pleasure to work with and it was a honor to help them serve members of our community.
  •   2022 Annual Meeting
    In place of our typical Annual Meeting held at the Dennis A.

In case you couldn't be with us during the Annual Meeting stream, the video is available on our Facebook page,, as well as under the videos section of our website.

  •   CEMC Military Service Project
    Central recently had the opportunity to serve individuals in our community who deserve recognition for the ongoing sacrifices they continually make: members of our military. Partnering with the Sandhills Area United Service Organizations (USO), Harnett County Partnership for Children and Life Springs Church, the co-op organized an effort to provide care packages for our local military families. Consisting of goodies for a “movie night,” along with care items from other organizations, the goal of the project was to provide an opportunity for our military families to relax and enjoy some time together.
