Wholesale Purchased Power

MEC’s major purchased power and transmission provider is Arizona Electric Power Cooperative. We also purchase power from other market providers with resources that include clean energy produced by solar and wind generators. With the volatility of the wholesale purchased power market, it makes sense to be part of a generation and transmission cooperative to offer reliable and cost-effective wholesale purchased power for our members. MEC may purchase wholesale power from the energy market when conditions and pricing are favorable or if needed during times of high demand.
