The Power of Co-op Membership

In 1935, Pella Cooperative Electric and electric co-ops across the nation were constructed with lines, poles and the foolhardy notion that we all prosper by helping each other.


Cooperatives like ours operate differently than most businesses. We are consumer-owned businesses, which means that you and your neighbors actually own your electric utility. You're a member, not a customer. And as your cooperative, we strive to deliver safe, affordable and reliable electricity.

Pella Cooperative Electric provides electricity to more than 3,000 members on 634 miles of line across five counties. Cooperatives have their roots in their local communities and the employees at Pella Cooperative Electric are no different. We are proud to live in the communities we serve, to support our hometown businesses and share the values of rural Iowa.
