About Us

Kansas Electric Power Cooperative, Inc. (KEPCo), headquartered in Topeka, Kansas, was incorporated in 1975 as a not-for-profit generation and transmission cooperative (G&T). It is KEPCo’s responsibility to procure an adequate and reliable power and energy supply for its 16 distribution electric cooperative members at a reasonable cost.

In addition to its core mission, KEPCo also assists its member cooperatives on such important activities as rural economic development, electric energy efficient appliance rebates, load and power cost forecasting, and system enhancement projects. KEPCo also offers a wide range of technical and engineering services to member and non-member cooperatives requiring consulting services through its wholly owned, for-profit subsidiary, KEPCo Services, Inc. (KSI).

Governed by a 16-member board of trustees, KEPCo’s members collectively serve more than 75,000 consumer-members in the eastern two-thirds of Kansas, which represents nearly 200,000 rural Kansans. The board of trustees establishes policies and acts on issues that often include recommendations from working committees of the board and KEPCo staff. The board also elects a seven-person executive committee, which includes the president, vice president, secretary, treasurer, and three additional members.

KEPCo’s power supply resources consist of 70 MW of owned generation from Wolf Creek Generating Station, 30 MW of owned generation from Iatan 2 Generating Plant, 20 MW of owned generation from Sharpe Generating Station, hydro allocations consisting of 100 MW from the Southwestern Power Administration and 13 MW from the Western Area Power Administration, 1 MW of owned generation from Prairie Sky Solar Farm, and partial requirement power purchases from regional utilities.

Currently, KEPCo employs 25 staff with expertise in engineering, information technology, power supply, transmission, supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA) operations, rates and rate design, finance, and accounting.
