In a cooperative like Wright-Hennepin, you are a member-owner of the business. One major difference between a cooperative and an investor-owned utility is that you see an ownership in the business through capital credits.
Wright-Hennepin’s electric service territory is divided into nine districts, each of which is represented by a board member. The members from each district elect their own director to serve on Wright-Hennepin's board.
WH Holding exists as an independent business structure that offers innovative and competitive products and services; it was created to manage risk, optimize resources, increase strategic energy sales, deliver complementary benefits and generate profits to offset the retail price of electricity for WH members.
