Clark Electric Cooperative is a distribution cooperative incorporated under the laws of the State of Wisconsin on April 1, 1937, and is located in Greenwood, Wisconsin. Clark Electric Cooperative was born out of a consolidation between Clark Electric (Neillsville), Big Four Electric (Spencer), and Willard Electric (Willard). The service location of Greenwood was chosen because it is centrally located within our service area. Since inception, electric service has been extended to farmsteads, businesses, and industrial operations in sparsely populated areas of Clark, Chippewa, Jackson, Marathon, Taylor, and Wood counties. Our service area extends more than 1,990 miles of distribution line.
Clark Electric Cooperative is a true cooperative. It is a private, not-for-profit service oriented utility owned by the members it serves. Clark Electric Cooperative was established to imporove the quality of life of its members by providing electric service to the remote areas of our service area at the lowest possible cost. Today our mission has expanded somewhat from just providing electric service to other areas that will imporve our members' quality of life. High Speed Satellite Internet, Health Monitoring and Economic Development activities are a few examples of how we strive to improve the rural way of life.
Clark Electric Cooperative is owned and controlled by the rural families and businesses we serve. We are governed by a Board of Directors, elected from the membership, by the membership. Each cooperative member has one vote in the election of Directors.
