The countdown is on. How are you doing with the holiday shopping? Still searching for that ideal gift for your parents? Need a present for a neighbor? What are you giving the newlyweds?
You might be surprised to know that the ideal gift for many on your list may be as near as your local Walton EMC office.
‘Twas just days before Christmas and shopping’s not done?
Try gifts from your co-op — they’re second to none!
You can easily wrap up holiday shopping in a flash with sure-to-please presents for even the most challenging name on your list. To help you, Walton EMC’s Customer Service Representatives put together a list of their top picks for the 2018 holidays.
Great Gift Idea #1:
Electricity Gift Certificate
Energize your holiday giving with the gift of electricity. Whether it’s for a daughter who just moved into her first apartment or your parents who have lived in the same house for 50 years, a Walton EMC Gift Certificate is a novel-yet-practical present. Any Walton EMC member will enjoy it long after the wrapping paper is in the trash and the eggnog is all gone.
Gift certificates can be purchased at any Walton EMC office in any amount you choose. Be sure to bring along each recipient’s complete address.
Great Gift Idea #2:
Cooperative Solar Block
Is there an environmentalist on your list? You can double their delight with an eco-friendly gift of solar energy. Through Walton EMC’s Cooperative Solar program, you can purchase blocks of solar electricity for any Walton EMC member.
Each block is only $25 a month and produces an average 180 to 260 kilowatt-hours of solar energy monthly. The kilowatt-hours produced by the block offsets the same number of kilowatt-hours on the gift recipient’s power bill. And, if the block produces more energy than is consumed, the gift recipient receives a bill credit for the excess.
There’s no long-term commitment, so you can give the gift of solar for as many or as few months as you wish.
Great Gift Idea #3:
Security System from EMC Security
Nothing shows love to those you care about more than the gift of home security. EMC Security’s Connect+ self-install security systems are designed for professional monitoring, yet have the ease of installation and everyday use that appeals to do-it-yourselfers.
This wireless security system can be installed right out of the box and is flexible enough to fit any size home and protect any family. It uses EMC Security’s 24/7 professional monitoring service and award winning, full-service tech support – starting at just $16.95 per month with no contract required.

Great Gift Idea #4:
Outdoor Security Light
For as little as $8 a month, you can brighten a loved one’s holiday with the gift of an outdoor security light. Outdoor lighting provides an added measure of security — and peace of mind — for any Walton EMC member and their personal property. Plus, your gift is a great deal when you consider that installation and maintenance by Walton EMC are included in the low monthly fee.
Walton EMC’s security lights are energy efficient and are compatible with both underground and overhead power lines. They can be mounted on a new or existing pole.
Great Gift Idea #5:
If the latest electronic toys are under the tree, don’t forget to add a quality surge suppressor as a stocking stuffer.
Walton EMC sells Tripp-Lite surge suppressors that protect expensive consumer electronics from lightning strikes and power surges. Beginning at $20, there is a Tripp-Lite model to fit almost any need, including computers, televisions, gaming systems and other electronic devices.
Tripp-Lite surge suppressors can be purchased at any Walton EMC office.
