About West Central Electric Coop
A member-owned, not-for-profit cooperative, West Central Electric Cooperative was formed in 1939 to bring electricity to rural areas. Rural Missourians began the co-op when existing utilities believed that energizing the countryside wasn't a profitable venture.
There are 40 rural electric cooperatives in the state of Missouri. WCE now provides power to more than 13,600 meters through 2,600 miles of line in five counties, including Lafayette, Johnson, Eastern Jackson and a small part of Cass and Pettis counties.
Added in 2005, West Central Services LLC (link is external). offers Exede high-speed satellite internet service.
The company's headquarters is located in Higginsville, Missouri, with a branch office in Oak Grove, Missouri.
Electric cooperatives are locally-owned and operated businesses committed to putting their consumers first, and being responsive to local needs.
With the help of Franklin D. Roosevelt, who established the Rural Electrification Administration in 1935, friends and neighbors banded together to create a new kind of electric utility, where the voice of every person made a difference. Electric cooperatives brought electric power to the rural areas when no one else would.
Today, Americas electric cooperatives continue to answer that call. With the same focus on customer needs, todays electric cooperatives provide much more than competitively-priced, reliable energy. They are committed to improving the quality of life in their communities and for the member-owners who live there.
