A Powerful Partner
Cooperative Energy is committed to Economic Development as an important way of improving the communities we serve. Our team of economic developers are dedicated to growing the economy by attracting new investment, supporting our existing companies, and advocating job growth.
Cooperative Energy is one of the largest energy providers in the state of Mississippi. With our 11 Member cooperatives, we power 448,000 Mississippi homes and businesses in 55 of Mississippi’s 82 counties — the largest territory in the state.
Natural gas-fired plants across the state, multiple solar energy sites, a 10% share of Grand Gulf Nuclear Station, hydro, and other renewable sources through MISO, such as wind, makes our power affordable and reliable.
It’s all about who you know. We work closely with local economic development agencies and the Mississippi Development Authority to recommend sites, offer rate incentives and find grant programs for eligible economic development projects.
