About WH

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.

Our Vision

To benefit our members, Wright-Hennepin and its diversified business will outperform our competitors and achieve top 10 percent results in satisfaction, financial management, safety and reliability by 2020.

Our Mission

We deliver the power, products and competitive pricing essential for improving the quality of life of the members and communities we serve.
