From the CEO
We are committed to safety. We deploy protocols to ensure the safety of our members. While cybersecurity is not as visible as other safety measures, it is critical to our co-op and members’ information. FreeState has built a solid foundation of cybersecurity and it’s important our members know how we keep your information secure.

FreeState's Board of Trustees
FreeState Electric Cooperative is founded on the cooperative business model. Unlike many businesses in today’s world, cooperatives were formed by their members, and to this day, it is still the members who govern their local cooperatives through the democratically elected board of trustees.

Your board includes members living in the FreeState service territory. Board members must make decisions that are in the best interest of the members, community, and the cooperative.
