About Wright-Hennepin Cooperative Electric Association

Wright-Hennepin Cooperative Electric Association is a member-owned, non-profit electric utility founded in 1937. Headquartered in Rockford, Minn., Wright-Hennepin is one of the state’s largest member-owned electric utilities and distributes electricity to more than 46,000 homes, businesses and farms.

What does it mean to be a member-owner?

Being a member-owner of Wright-Hennepin distinguishes you from other electric utility customers in a number of ways:

  • Your voice is heard. You have an input regarding setting policy through a nine-member board elected by you and other Wright-Hennepin members in the local area. Board members serve three-year terms and elections are held at an Annual Meeting each spring.
  • You share in the “profits” of the cooperative. Since we are a cooperative, any excess margins are returned to our member-owners in the form of capital credits. Wright-Hennepin has returned more than $30 million in capital credits over the years.

Guiding principles of your cooperative

The core focus of Wright-Hennepin is to provide you with competitive electric rates, reliable and safe power, and outstanding customer service.

Wright-Hennepin celebrated it's 75th Anniversary on March 27, 2012. A history video was produced to commemorate the event. Clips of the video can be found here. If you'd like your own copy, contact customer service at (763) 477-3000 to order one.
