Diverse Energy Mix

With changing policies affecting how energy companies produce power, Associated Electric Cooperative works with one goal: to serve the member. You can learn more about Associated's member-first focus for energy generation and how the cooperative uses a mix of energy sources to keep your power reliable and affordable.

Reliable Electricity

Providing reliable power expected by members requires different types of generation. Associated’s fleet — producing electricity generated by natural gas, coal, wind and hydropower — is diverse enough to provide power on the hottest, coldest, driest, windiest and calmest days.

Affordable Electricity

Electricity is provided to members 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. As members ramp up their use, Associated’s goal is to ensure reliability, then match members’ needs to the most affordable generation resource.
