“To advance the position of agriculture, 丰富社会生活, to free men and women from the heavy drudgery of home and farm, this electric system was erected in cooperation with their federal government by farmers and their neighborhood to whom it supplies the limitless service of electricity.”

“To advance the position of agriculture, 丰富社会生活, to free men and women from the heavy drudgery of home and farm, this electric system was erected in cooperation with their federal government by farmers and their neighborhood to whom it supplies the limitless service of electricity.”

Over fifty years ago the people of the surrounding area chose to band together to bring a necessary service to a community in need. The founding members of 韦伯斯特电 Cooperative went to great extremes to ensure that the members of their community would be able to receive the same services as their counterparts in the cities. It is from this idea that the group’s mission statement was born and from this mission statement grew the cooperative. From its charter in 1946 the cooperative has endured many changes, difficulties and trials only to emerge stronger and more robust.From the earliest beginnings as a dream shared by a handful of citizens to being a low-cost energy supplier for over 16,000消费者, 韦伯斯特电 Cooperative has evolved to be an integral part of the lives of the citizens in a seven-county area.

继续讲创始人的愿景, the cooperative continues to strive to provide its members with new technologies and efficient services. 当我们开始第二个千年, the cooperative is offering its members such services as surge suppression, home energy audits and local internet connections. 通过提供这些服务, the cooperative continues to strive to fulfill its promise to the participating members as it was written in 1946.

With a rate per kilowatt hour of just $.06851, 韦伯斯特电 Cooperative has one of the lowest electric rate among the 40 Missouri Cooperatives.

电力合作社是:

  • Private independent electric utility businesses,
  • Incorporated under the laws of the states in which they operate,
  • Established to provide at-cost electric service,
  • 属于他们所服务的消费者,
  • Governed by a board of directors elected from the membership, which sets policies and procedures that are implemented by the cooperatives’ professional staff.

Most electric co-ops are distribution cooperatives that deliver electricity to the consumer. Some are generation and transmission cooperatives that both generate and transmit electricity to meet the power needs of distribution co-ops.

合作社的不同之处?

Cooperatives are operated to provide at-cost electric service to the consumer-owners. 另一方面, investor-owned utilities that are not co-ops are operated to maximize profit for the shareholders. A co-op’s net margin above expenses and reserves does not belong to the utility; it belongs to the individual consumer-owners of the co-op. The margins must either be used to improve or maintain operations, or be distributed to those who use the co-op’s products or services.
