About CIPCO

Central Iowa Power Cooperative (CIPCO) is Iowa’s largest cooperative energy provider since 1946. Our members serve a population of nearly 300,000 rural and urban residents and approximately 12,000 commercial and industrial accounts.

Membership status is given to the 13 rural electric cooperatives and associations with an elected representative from each serving on the CIPCO board of directors. This governing body selects a Chief Executive Officer who is responsible for the day-to-day operations of the cooperative.

CIPCO supplies all power requirements for its member cooperatives, and as their power provider, we are dedicated to delivering quality, safe, and reliable service at the lowest possible cost.
