Iowa Association of Electric Cooperatives


The Iowa Association of Electric Cooperatives is comprised of 45 members, including 37 distribution cooperatives which deliver electricity directly to member-consumers and 8 generation & transmission cooperatives (G&Ts) which generate and transmit electricity to distribution co-ops. Not-for-profit cooperatives are owned by the members they serve and are locally governed by elected directors. Collectively, the electric cooperatives of Iowa power the lives of 650,000 people throughout all 99 counties.
