Our focus is on improving
the communities we serve.
If you live in or near a rural community in Mississippi, your power is likely provided by a not-for-profit electric cooperative, and you are a member. As a member, you buy your power at cost, with no profits collected by your electric cooperative. Each cooperative operates at the local level according to the needs of its community.
Among the 12 electric cooperatives, we have approximately 445,000 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 board members are from your community, and because they work in your community and raise their families in your community, they likely want the same things you want. This provides local control because they listen and respond to members’ suggestions and requests.
