Wabash Valley Power Alliance (WVPA) is a not-for-profit generation and transmission cooperative created out of the need for reliable, affordable electricity in America's heartland. We don't have customers, we have members. Based in Indianapolis, Indiana, WVPA provides wholesale power to 23 distribution cooperatives in Illinois, Indiana, and Missouri that serve over 310,000 residential and business members (which makes us a co-op of co-ops). In other words, we're not selling electricity to customers and we're not working for shareholders. We're providing electricity to members who are actually owners. And we are guided by the seven principles that govern all co-ops.
Our unique approach to supplying electricity has positioned us for years of very competitive electric rates. By using a variety of fuel sources to supply electricity, such as coal, natural gas, landfill gas, solar , wind, and even cattle waste, we manage our risk for more predictable rates, no matter what the future holds.
From our role in establishing ACES, Touchstone Energy®, and MISO to developing highly successful POWER MOVES(R) energy efficiency programs and Co-Op Solar, WVPA continues to look to the future to deliver stability and growth. We are a deliberately different kind of power company. And that's good news for the people who depend on us.
