One thing hasn’t changed in the last eight decades, and that is how the Indian Electric Cooperative employees, directors and members all work together to make energy distribution, conservation and innovation a priority for rural communities.

Incorporated on August 1, 1939, Indian Electric Cooperative, Inc. is a member-owned, not-for-profit distribution cooperative that supplies electric service to its members in seven north-central and northeastern Oklahoma counties including Pawnee, Osage, Creek, Payne, Noble, Kay and Tulsa.

IEC now provides almost 14,000 members with service to 20,080 homes and businesses through 3,516 miles of distribution line covering a service territory of 2,500 square miles.

IEC employs 79 people and has headquarters in Cleveland and a district office in Fairfax. IEC is governed by a board of directors from each of its seven districts. Each directors serves a three-year term. All cooperative members have equal voting rights and the opportunity to vote at IEC’s district and annual meetings.
