We’re a different sort of power provider
At our core is the belief that cooperatives deliver more value with our electricity because we are built by and for our member distribution cooperatives and public power districts, to power what matters to them. Our members have asked for cleaner, more affordable and more flexible power, so we're delivering, adding more value than ever before.
There’s a lot that goes into powering our communities, and there have always been good reasons to share the benefits, costs, risks and obligations of electricity generation and transmission, especially as technology and our industry have changed. These are some of the key ways we deliver value while delivering on our mission to our members.
What it means to be a member
At Tri-State, we’re not just an electric utility, we’re a network. Together, with our members, we work to balance our resources to generate electricity reliably, affordably, and responsibly. As a cooperative, we don’t answer to shareholders, we answer to our neighbors. We work together. From supporting each other in times of need to access to low-cost utility-scale renewables, membership in Tri-State delivers more value today than ever before.
