Associated ends energy conservation request, returns to normal operations after extreme winter weather

Springfield, MO – The three-tiered system of cooperatives served by Associated Electric Cooperative has endured record-setting peak demand days brought on by extreme temperatures in its service area and a wide swath of the country.

Associated was able to reliably serve its member load, not requiring any service interruptions, in part due to its diverse generation portfolio and resilient transmission system, the conservation measures of its member systems and the dedication of its employees, from those at its power plants to those in system operations and energy marketing.

Associated has returned to normal operations and is no longer asking member systems to conserve energy, although energy efficiency continues to be a method for member-consumers to lower their electricity bills. Member-consumers can learn more by visiting their local cooperative for energy efficiency tips or the Take Control & Save website,

Associated Electric Cooperative Inc. is owned by and provides wholesale power to six regional and 51 local electric cooperative systems in Missouri, southeast Iowa and northeast Oklahoma that serve more than 910,000 members, representing about two million member-consumers. Associated’s mission is to provide an economical and reliable power supply and support services to its members. Associated is a Touchstone Energy Cooperative.
