Reliable. Affordable. Accessible.
Steve Freese, WECA President and CEO

Most of us only think about electricity three times per month. The first is when we get our bill, the second is when we pay our bill, and the third time is when we flip the light switch, and the lights don’t come on. It would be the rare person who thinks about how the electricity they use is produced since for most of us our concern is: Will it be there when I need it? And can I afford it?
