Wheatland Electric Cooperative, Inc.
Wheatland Electric is proud to “Deliver Energy for Life” to more than 20,000 Kansas homes and businesses with a total of about 32,000 meters. We take our mission seriously because we know the electricity we deliver fuels those crucial fans in the grain bins after harvest time, keeps life-support equipment running for fragile older people, lights up athletic fields for our terrific school teams, and even powers night lights for children who are afraid of the dark.
We care because we’re not just a company. We’re a Cooperative. We’re owned by the people we serve. Those people are spread out over 14 different Kansas counties and parts of 2 counties in Colorado. In May, 2014 our Kansas members voted for self-regulation, bringing control of Wheatland’s prices and projects back home where it belongs. It takes over 100,000 poles and more than 4,500 miles of power lines, spanning nearly 4,600 square miles, to distribute electricity to our members, and, as far as we’re concerned, the 4,499th mile is just as important as the first.
