Chief Executive Officer's Welcome
Dear New Member:
Welcome to High Plains Power. In the balance of this part of our website, you will find information that we need to establish your electric account with us. Please take a few minutes to look over this website and see the many services that High Plains Power offers to the member/owners.
Let me take a few minutes to acquaint you with your electric service provider.
When you signed up to receive electric service from High Plains Power, Inc. you became a member /owner of your electric cooperative. While investor-owned utilities return a portion of any profits back to their shareholders, electric cooperatives operate on an at-cost basis. So instead of returning leftover funds, known as margins, to folks who might not live in the same region or even the same state as you do, High Plains Power allocates and periodically retires capital credits (also called patronage dividends, or patronage capital) based on how much electricity you purchased during a year.
The Board of Directors represent the member-owners of High Plains. They meet monthly to review the performance of your cooperative and provide direction to the staff. High Plains holds an Annual Meeting to elect the members of the Board of Directors, and conduct business that requires membership approval. The Board is directly responsible for hiring the CEO. As the CEO of High Plains, I am responsible for the day-to-day staffing and operation of the cooperative consistent with Board directives.
The Staff and I are here to serve you, the member/owner. Please help us do our job as effectively as possible. If you have a suggestion that will improve our service, please let me know about your suggestion. I can be reached in any of four ways:
Phone at 1-800-445-0613
P.O. Box 713
Riverton, WY 82501
or you may come by the office at 1775 E Monroe in Riverton
On behalf of all the members of the Board of Directors, Management, Staff and Employees at High Plains Power, welcome. Our goal and pledge is to provide you with the most reliable and lowest cost electric service available.
Marlene Morss, CEO
High Plains Power, Inc.
