Your electric cooperative buys power from Cooperative Energy at wholesale prices. Once we cover the costs of providing power and set money aside for the future and emergencies, any remaining funds, called capital credits, go back to you.
Among the 12 electric cooperatives, we have more than 427,000 members. That gives each of us a more powerful voice when it comes to issues that impact our state, like keeping power costs low and keeping the environment clean.
Your electric cooperative’s elected board members are from your service area, providing local control. You can participate through voting, or simply contact your local electric cooperative.
