Powering Community


Cooperative leaders formed Hoosier Energy in 1949 to help electrify rural communities. Today, the generation and transmission cooperative serves 18 member systems in southern and central Indiana and southeastern Illinois. 

At the heart of the cooperative culture is an honest desire to provide services that value reliability, affordability and sustainability. These aspects connect to Hoosier Energy’s mission as it works to make a difference together with member co-ops. 

Hoosier Energy’s obligation to serve transcends weather, market volatility or regulatory uncertainty. It rests solely on working together with member systems to deliver electricity to power homes and communities in Indiana.

Our member cooperatives serve: 

  • 59 Indiana and Illinois counties
  • Operating and maintaining 36,000 miles of distribution lines
  • Providing electric service to nearly 307,000 member-consumers
  • Serving an estimated 710,000 people in Indiana and Illinois
