Welcome to the West Central Electric Cooperative website. West Central Electric is a member-owned, not-for-profit electric cooperative formed in 1939 to bring electricity to the rural areas of Lafayette, Johnson, eastern Jackson and a small portion of Cass and Pettis counties in west central Missouri.
Our catch-phrase, “Serving our members since 1939,” is not just a slogan that appears along with our logo and contact information. It is a daily way of life. West Central Electric exists to serve its members by providing the safest, most reliable electricity at the lowest possible cost. But we do more than that. We serve our local members by:
·supporting our local communities
·providing opportunities for our area youth
·educating our members on ways to save money on their energy bills
·providing safety and energy-efficiency programs to members and the general public, young and old.
We also look out for the best interests of our members by keeping up with current issues that affect electric consumers and joining our fellow cooperatives through Grassroots efforts to make sure our members have a voice.
So you see, being an electric cooperative means much more than just providing electricity. It means striving every day to make life for our members better, and to make a difference in the world in which they live.
Please look through our website for all the things West Central has to offer and the value of your cooperative membership. Can’t find what you are looking for? Contact us!
