The Oklahoma Association of Electric Cooperatives is a statewide association created and supported by local electric distribution and generation/transmission cooperatives. OAEC is comprised of 30 member systems, 28 in Oklahoma and two Arkansas systems with a portion of their membership residing in Oklahoma.


Formed in September 1942, OAEC’s purpose is to:

  • Obtain the fairest possible treatment from state and local governments by acquainting legislators, congressional leaders and other governmental officials with the electric cooperative program.

  • Enlist the active support of communities by explaining the value of electric cooperatives to the local community and its economy.

  • Improve the service quality of member systems by acting as a clearinghouse where leaders can exchange ideas and experiences on common problems or opportunities.

  • Preserve and strengthen individual cooperatives providing them with professional services:  

    • Safety and Loss Control Program
    • Advertising and Marketing Campaigns
    • Publication of Oklahoma Living, a magazine that reaches over 280,000 homes monthly
    • Economic Development Programs
    • Mutual Aid Disaster Planning and Coordination
    • Professional Development Programs for directors, managers, supervisors and staff personnel
