Arkansas Electric Cooperative Corporation
Energy technology changes rapidly. Over the past five years, Arkansas Electric Cooperative Corporation (AECC) has added wind, biomass and solar resources to our coal, natural gas and hydroelectric generation. These resources provide a diverse, reliable and affordable energy mix for our members.
We Grow Communities.
From working with new or existing companies to working with government leaders, AECC, through its member cooperatives, help Arkansas communities grow and prosper.
We are Local and Reliable.
AECC works to maintain and improve its generation and transmission services so that its distribution members can keep the lights on. While our infrastructure provides a high level of reliability that ensures efficient power restoration services in the event of storms and disasters.
We Build Leaders.
AECC helps prepare today’s youth for leadership by partnering with 4-H, FFA, the Washington, D.C. Youth Tour and other educational youth programs.
Smart energy is our business, so AECC provides energy efficiency education and programs to our members. Our goal is to help members save money without sacrificing comfort or convenience.
We Give Back.
Over the past few years, Arkansas’ electric cooperatives have sent dedicated linemen to Guatemala and Bolivia to bring electricity to villages for the first time. The mission launched more than 75 years ago is now being carried forward to power other countries.
We Are Your Local Energy Partners.
More than 75 years ago, the Arkansas’ electric cooperatives took on a great challenge. Pioneers committed not just to the business of electricity, but to the greater purpose of making lives and communities better. Today, AECC powers Arkansas’ 17 locally owned electric distribution cooperatives.
