We proudly support the weekly Downtown Farmers’ Market. Everything at the market is grown, raised, or made within 200 miles of Corpus Christi, Texas. It’s open every Wednesday evening at The Art Center of Corpus Christi, 100 North Shoreline, from 5:00-8:00pm.
When you donate $1 per electricity bill to our Member-to-Member Assistance Fund, we’ll put 100% of the donations to help other members in need pay their electricity bill. Approximately 620 members participate in the program, allowing us to provide over $10,500 to fellow members in need.
Operation Round-Up allows members to opt-in to round up their electricity bill to the next dollar. The extra change goes to a fund to support Nueces Electric Charities, Inc. to target improvements in education, health, hunger, abuse and homelessness. Through this program, we’ve granted awards of over $100,000 every year to our Texas communities.
