There’s vibrant new energy taking shape across America; members like you are transforming rural and small communities.
Cass County Electric Cooperative is an electric cooperative, built by the communities we serve to deliver reliable, sustainable, and affordable energy. And, because we answer to local members like you, rather than out-of-town shareholders, our electric cooperative has a unique understanding of our local needs. As a local business staffed by your friends and neighbors, Cass County Electric Cooperative is finding new ways to make a difference – beyond delivering electricity.
Cass County Electric Cooperative is a community-focused organization, providing jobs and investing in the community through programs like Prairie Sun Community Solar, giving back to the community through programs like Operation Round Up ($219,239), sponsorships and charitable donations ($42,800), supporting higher education and scholarships ($25,000), capital credits ($2,069,420), the Youth Leadership Tour and more.

Being a member of a cooperative distinguishes you from other electric utility consumers, as well as other business relationships, in essential ways.
Co-op leaders are members of our local community. Our nine board members live right here in our local area and are elected by co-op members just like you. Board members serve three-year terms, and elections are held at our annual meeting each spring.
We belong to the communities we serve. Since we are a cooperative, any excess revenue is shared back with members over time.
We follow the same seven cooperative principles that all cooperative businesses follow.
Though we are local and cover more than 55,000 members, ten counties, and nearly 6,000 miles of line, we’re part of something bigger. Across the country, electric cooperatives work together to restore power during major outages, develop new technologies and build infrastructure that benefits us all.
In addition to Co-op Connections, Prairie Sun Community Solar, off-peak and EV programs, we’re always looking for new ways to help our members save money, energy, and take advantage of the technology that’s changing the way we live and work.
The opportunity to create something new here while embracing traditional community values has never been greater. It’s a passion we share with you, our members, for making our community a place we’re all proud to call home.
That’s the source of our new energy at Cass County Electric Cooperative. We are here powering your life.
