The Land Trust for the Mississippi Coastal Plain Partnership
Since 2005, Coast Electric has worked with The Land Trust for the Mississippi Coastal Plain (LTMCP) whose mission is to conserve, promote, and protect the open spaces and green places of ecological, cultural or scenic significance in the six counties of the Mississippi Coastal Plain.
Coast Electric employees have worked hand in hand with the LTMCP on many projects over the past 18 years. Your cooperative is sponsoring incredible properties that help fulfill our mission of improving life in the communities we serve.
The Shaw Homestead
The Shaw Homestead is located on Barth Road in Pearl River County. With no running water and a single wire providing one light bulb in each room of the main house, you can only imagine the excitement when the Shaw’s home was energized. Since Hurricane Camille, the homestead has remained vacant and without power and was donated to the LTMCP. Coast Electric employees in Pearl River County have taken ownership of this project to maintain the property and tell the story of rural electrification.
