From the CEO
FreeState Electric Cooperative is continually looking at ways we can bridge gaps between our demographics and how we can provide the same benefits to each member, no matter where they live within our territory.

It's our story!

Former Board Member Passes

It is with great sadness that the FreeState Electric Cooperative family informs our members of the passing of long-time board member, Larry Meadows. 

Meadows retired from the board earlier this year. He will be missed by not only his FreeState family but the community of Tonganoxie. 

FreeState offers condolences to the Meadows family. 

Member Events in October

FreeState Electric Cooperative is host- ing two of our annual community events in October this year.

This will be the 10th year for the Community Health Fair at our McLouth office and the second year for the Community Energy Fair at our
Topeka office.

The Health Fair will be held on Tuesday, Oct. 2, from 4 to 6 p.m., and the Energy Fair will be held on Wednesday, Oct. 24, from 4 to 6 p.m.
We strive to help you better understand the services available to you while getting to know those who are continuously working to provide you with safe, reliable, and efficient power. It is for this reason FreeState chose to develop a year-long series focusing on each of our individual departments and the employees in them that are member-driven.
