We're not just your electric provider, we're an electric cooperative, meaning we're owned and governed by the members we serve. Our membership drives the work we do every day and leads us into a strong future. Our cooperative thrives on member input, which is why we included members just like you in the planning of our mission, vision and core values.
Mission: To improve the quality of life for our members by providing safe and reliable energy solutions.
Vision: To lead with innovation and integrity.
