Cloverland Electric Cooperative was built by the communities we serve to deliver safe, reliable, and affordable energy to our cooperative members. The co-op services 43,000 meters, with 4,000 miles of line through five rural counties in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Cloverland maintains local control of Sault Ste. Marie’s historic hydroelectric power plant, which contributes to generating 40-50% of the co-op’s power with renewable energy. As an electric cooperative, we are locally owned and operated yet we’re also a part of something bigger. Across the country, electric cooperatives work together to restore power during major outages, develop new technologies, and build infrastructure that benefits us all.
Being a member-owner of a cooperative distinguishes you from other electric utility consumers, as well as other business models, in important ways.
Co-op leaders are members of our local community. Our nine board members live right here in our local area and are elected by co-op members just like you.
We belong to the communities we serve. Since we are a cooperative, any excess revenue is shared back with members, over time.
We follow the same seven cooperative principles t...hat all cooperative businesses follow across the United States.
Cloverland Electric is proud to be a part of the local community and we care about our members. We’re always looking for new ways to help our members conserve energy, save money, and take advantage of the technology that’s changing the way we live and work.
