From the CEO
At the end of each day I empty my pockets and put any loose change I’ve acquired in a jar. That change typically includes a few pennies, or maybe a nickel or dime, and occasionally I’ll even toss in a quarter or two. It seems insignificant at the time I’m dropping extra coins into that jar, but at the end of the year, I’ve got myself a few extra bucks.

Operation Round-Up ®
FreeState Electric Cooperative is pleased to provide financial support to community programs through Operation Round-Up®. Funding for Operation Round-Up is donated by the member-owners of FreeState Electric Cooperative, who volunteer to round their monthly electric bill up to the next even dollar amount. The monies are combined, and grants are awarded on a quarterly basis.

Consolidation Savings Reaches $25 million

As of January 1, 2017, FreeState Electric Cooperative (FEC) began serving member-owners as the largest rural electric cooperative in Northeast Kansas.

The newest Kansas electric cooperative is the result of a consolidation of Kaw Valley Electric and Leavenworth-Jefferson Electric Cooperatives following a member vote in April of 2016. The vote passed by 86 and 87 percent of members supporting the consolidation, and the prospect of saving $20 million over 10 years, while avoiding rate increases over the next three to five years.

As Westar looks to raise the rate of electricity for the 26th time since 2009, electric cooperative rates have not changed since 2010 for FEC’s East District and since 2012 for FEC’s West District.
