Capital Electric serves more than 15,300 member-owners, providing electrical service to more than 18,000 meters. We own more than 2,770 miles of distribution and transmission line to serve our consumers. Approximately 38% of those lines are buried cable.
As a cooperative, we are owned and governed by the members we serve. Our directors on the board are elected by the membership, so they have a vested interest in the operation of the cooperative.
