Since its founding in 1939, Wiregrass Electric Cooperative’s goal has been to provide affordable, reliable and clean energy to rural communities in southeastern Alabama that for-profit power companies found unprofitable.
Now, nearly 80 years later, WEC has continued that promise to our members, making sure they know that they are at the heart of everything we do. We now maintain 24,000 meters and serve 17,000 members. We service 3,100 miles of line, and our 67 full-time employees serve members at four offices — the Hartford headquarters and district offices in Dothan, Samson and Ashford.
WEC also implements the latest in technology and constantly monitors our financial responsibilities to provide you with safe, fast and reliable service.
One of the ways we do this is by monitoring our benchmarks and key performance indicators through Key Ratio Trend Analysis (KRTA) reports. These reports are an annual assessment of financial trends among electric distribution cooperatives nationwide. Looking at these trends allows us to see how we are performing compared to other cooperatives in the nation and ensures we are on a firm financial footing.
