Wheatland to Pass on Power Cost Savings in 2015

Members Could Save as Much as $5 Million

‚ÄčAs a result of your locally elected Wheatland board of trustees' efforts to encourage and support strategies that seek to mitigate the costs of wholesale power, Wheatland expects to see an 11 percent decrease in power costs from one of its wholesale power suppliers, Sunflower Electric Power Corporation, in 2015.

In 1948, at a time when the rural areas of Kansas did not have access to electricity like their urban neighbors, you, our members formed Wheatland Electric. For 66 years we have been steadfastly committed to the mission of providing reliable electricity at a competitive price to our members.  Our goal in keeping to that mission is to protect the way of life you value.  We know your access to affordable, reliable energy is essential to meeting the needs of your family, business and community.

As a cooperative, Wheatland is governed by a democratically elected board of trustees. The board is made up of members just like you, some of them your friends and neighbors, who work together for the good of the cooperative.  One of the many jobs of your member-elected board is to advocate on the behalf of the membership for lower wholesale power costs from our wholesale power suppliers, Sunflower Electric and Mid-Kansas Electric.
