You are invited to follow the journey of Michigan electric co-op employees as they work on the “Partners for Power” project that will bring electricity to 54 homes in the village of Buena Vista, Guatemala.

Tomorrow, lineworkers and safety employees from Cherryland, Great Lakes Energy, HomeWorks Tri-Country, Wolverine Power, and the Michigan Electric Cooperative Association, will head to Guatemala. Sign-up for “postcards from Guatemala,” and you will receive a daily electronic “postcard” in your email inbox during the 15-day project. These short “postcards” will update you on project progress and happenings, and offer an opportunity to learn about the country, culture and experience from the perspective of the on-site Michigan workers.

There’s no two ways about it, this project will change lives – for the Guatemalans who receive electricity, and most likely the linemen involved, too.

To sign up, visit and click on “Postcard Gallery.” You can also leave comments and invite others to join the journey.
