FUEL Your Business with Co-op Power

On the cutting edge of their industry, co-ops seek new and innovative technologies and resources to keep their operations competitive. MREA Vendor Membership links your company to a network of 50 electric co-ops that, together:

  • employ about 5,440 people
  • serve 802,000 customer meters, or about 1.8 million people, covering 85 percent of the geographic area of the state
  • sell more than 14.7 billion kWh per year (about 18 percent of the state’s total electricity sold) and generate $1.5 billion in revenues
  • Cooperatives range in size between just under 2,000 to more than 125,000.
  • Our distribution network (lines and substations) is the largest in the state, with more than 121,000 miles of electric distribution lines. That’s significantly more than Xcel Energy’s Minnesota operation (28,718), or the four private power companies in Minnesota combined (40,722), which reflect significantly higher capital costs.
