Did you see hot air balloons fill the sky this summer at the United Way’s Defiance County Hot Air Balloon Festival? Those who saw North Western Electric Cooperative’s (NWEC) Touchstone Energy® balloon know the community-focused co-op is a sponsor of the festival and long-time donor of local initiatives that improve quality of life.
NWEC recently presented a $1,050 donation to the Defiance County Agricultural Society, a sign of the co-op’s commitment to community.
The Touchstone Energy balloon provides a highly visible means of demonstrating good corporate citizenship at local civic and philanthropic events. Every day that the balloon participates in an event on behalf of the local sponsoring Touchstone Energy cooperative, a monetary contribution is made to a local charity of their choice.

More than 750 Touchstone Energy Cooperatives in 46 states are delivering energy and energy solutions to about 32 million consumer-members every day.
