About Us Stroke 1

Remaining Affordable While Adding Value

Our members have the lowest residential cooperative rate in the state and among the lowest of any provider in our region.

We keep your rates affordable by giving you a voice in your electric service, through our not-for-profit business structure, and by returning margins back to you, our members, as member credits.

We also add value to your life by providing additional services like free safety demonstrations, donating to community nonprofits and charitable organizations, and providing scholarship and grant opportunities.

More About the Cooperative Difference Stroke 1

Increasingly Clean

Our goal is to provide 80% carbon-free energy to our members by 2030.

We will work towards meeting this goal without raising rates while maintaining the safe, reliable service our members expect.

Find out what we’re doing and how you can help us get to 80% by 2030.
