Carolina Country is a monthly regional consumer magazine devoted to members of North Carolina's Touchstone Energy cooperatives. We are dedicated to including our readers in delivering helpful and interesting information about their cooperatives and communities.

North Carolina's Touchstone Energy cooperatives provide reliable, safe and affordable energy and related services to more than 850,000 households and businesses from the Blue Ridge Mountains to the Outer Banks. Each of the 26 cooperatives is member-owned, not-for-profit and overseen by a board of directors elected by the membership.

The North Carolina Electric Membership Corporation provides support for the state's cooperatives.

Touchstone Energy is the network of local, customer-owned utilities around the country committed to providing superior service at affordable rates to all customers large and small. More than 600 cooperatives in 40 states, representing some 22 million consumer-members, are part of the network. Touchstone Energy cooperatives abide by four core values: integrity, innovation, accountability and commitment to community. Learn more at
