Missouri has a well-defined and well-run system of electric cooperatives that generate, transmit and distribute electricity to the rural residents of the state.

  1. Electricity is generated by Associated Electric Cooperative Inc., based in Springfield, Missouri.
  2. That power is transmitted from AECI's generation facilities to substations by six transmission cooperatives. Two of these transmission cooperatives, KAMO Power Electric Cooperative, Inc., located in Vinita, Oklahoma and Sho-Me Power Electric Cooperative, Inc., located in Marshfield, Missouri, own and maintain the substations that serve our system.
  3. The electricity is then distributed from the substations to homes, farms and businesses by 40 distribution cooperatives throughout rural Missouri. Southwest Electric Cooperative, Inc., is a distribution cooperative.
