Ensure reliable, economical power supply
Your electricity is produced using a mix of fuels and technologies: coal, natural gas, hydropower, wind, and energy efficiency. This allows for flexibility while providing reliable and affordable electricity.
Associated Electric Cooperative (Our wholesale power supplier) is part of a three-tiered system united by the common purpose of serving electric cooperative members with affordable and reliable electricity. Associated is owned by six generation and transmission cooperatives (G&Ts) that formed it in 1961 to provide them a wholesale power supply. These six G&Ts are owned by 51 distribution cooperatives in Missouri, southeast Iowa, and northeast Oklahoma. These local electric cooperatives are owned by more than 910,000 member-consumers.
