Share Your Thoughts, Shape What’s Ahead!
Every other year, Choptank Electric Cooperative conducts a survey of its residential members on a variety of topics. This survey is designed to provide information that can be used to better serve our members' needs. Using the responses, Choptank Electric can modify existing programs to meet changing needs, add new programs, enhance communications with you, and more!
The survey will ask you about the construction of your home, the types and age of your heating and cooling systems, the number and age of appliances, how you connect to the Internet, and a variety of other topics. Unlike quizzes and tests in school, there is nothing you need to study or prepare for in advance. Just sit back, relax, and answer the questions to the best of your ability.
This year the survey will be conducted entirely online. The rationale for this approach is straightforward:
- Online surveying saves resources, no paper used or postage required.
- It is easy to complete and doesn’t pick up stains from your coffee cup.
- It eliminates data entry errors.
Of course, the logical follow-up question is, “What if I don’t have internet access or completing things online is difficult for me?”
Fortunately, there are a number of simple solutions. If your internet access is limited, try using a PC at your local library or at a family member/friend’s home. Make an event of it and enjoy some good company while you provide input to help your cooperative deliver greater value. The survey also works very well on a tablet or smart phone.
As with all surveys, more is better so please, be sure to take a few minutes to provide your input. All answers are confidential unless you have a question or issue you would like your cooperative to contact you about. Just enter that request in the comment box at the end of the survey.
In mid-May, you will be sent a survey link via email. Please complete the survey as soon as you can. The goal is to have the data analyzed and a report prepared by August.
That’s it. We all get barraged by survey requests when we are online. Many of those are designed to tailor online ads in your browser to tempt you to buy something. This survey is designed to equip your cooperative to add value to your service. So please, if possible, complete it. Thank you in advance for helping us!
Does your co-op have your current email address?
In order to participate in the survey your cooperative will need your current email address. Please send it to them in the near future so your input can become part of the results. Like all your account information, it is safe and secure with the cooperative.
