Ninestar Connect



Ninestar Connect’s David Spencer, Director of Marketing and Mike Burrow, President spoke to Kiwanis about the company and its plans to expand into water and sewer services throughout their service area.  Ninestar provides residential and business electrical and telecom services in Hancock, Hamilton, Madison, and Rush counties.  Over 100 employees service over 14,000  customers.   The company paid over $1,000,000 in property taxes in 2016.  Since 2011, Ninestar has returned $2.5 million to its member/customers in cash payments.
Ninestar found that the lack of “wet utilities” contributes to uneven growth in their service areas.  75% of Hancock County doesn’t have access to water or sewer service.  Numerous private wells are being tested due to unsafe water.  Many private septic systems do not meet current requirements.  Initially, Ninestar has purchased water utilities from Sugar Creek Utilities,  and Philadelphia Water.  Ninestar hopes that as they develop their utilities additional development will help to pay for the expansion.
