We are the Association of Missouri Electric Cooperatives. AMEC is a statewide organization headquartered in Jefferson City representing Missouri's 47 electric co-ops.

Founded in 1937, our mission is to provide a means for electric cooperatives to work together and accomplish things collectively that they could not do as effectively or efficiently on their own. The Association of Missouri Electric Cooperatives is truly a grassroots organization. Everything we do here at AMEC begins as a request from a local system. That request is driven by a need from the member at the end of the line. Your statewide exists to do only those things your system does not have the time, power or money to do on its own. By working together, we have been able to keep the rural electric program strong and influential in Missouri.

Please look around and discover all the things your co-op has to offer. Can't find what you are looking for or have a question? Please contact us.

AECI is wholly owned by its members, your local electric cooperative, which in turn, is owned by you, the paying member owner at the end of the line.

AECI relies on a diverse array of power sources which includes wind energy from six different wind farms, one hydroelectric peaking power plant, three combined-cycle gas-based power plants, Read More...
