Benefits of Membership

Members of Indiana Electric Cooperatives enjoy a variety of benefits designed to support their best interests. We speak on behalf of members regarding key issues related to the electric cooperative industry. We can accomplish collectively what no one cooperative can do alone.

In addition to adhering to the seven cooperative principles, we operate according to three core values:

Integrity. We are always transparent and honest.

Respect. We value and listen to the opinions, thoughts and rights of others to create a forum where all ideas can be expressed.

Service. We embody a spirit of service to all our member cooperatives and to all the people they serve.
