Our members are the heart of our cooperative – we were created and built by our members, and 80 years later we are still member-owned and member-driven in all that we do. Our cooperative works non-stop to deliver reliable power to our members, while reducing costs, stabilizing rates, and providing the highest level of customer service.
While we work to power today, we also plan for powering our communities in the future. Our new strategic plan focuses on collaboration with other utilities, our communities and our members. It also looks to the future with a balanced approach to innovate our infrastructure, provide more options to our members, and plan for the long-term stewardship of our organization and the changing world around us.
As a member-owner of this cooperative, we appreciate you and hope you take advantage of your benefits including participating in our elections, the annual meeting, community events, and providing us with your ideas and feedback on how we can do better. At MEA we always look forward to serving you.
