Electric Cooperative Law
Wheeler has a proud history supporting the creation and development of consumer-owned electric cooperatives. That tradition continues today. Our attorneys advise both distribution cooperatives and cooperative wholesale power suppliers. We are well versed in the particular challenges that face electric cooperatives and the communities that they support.
We regularly advise electric cooperatives in all matters that arise as they build, operate, and maintain reliable and cost-effective electric systems for their members, and establish and implement effective governance practices for their consumer-owned organizations. Whether you are negotiating commercial contracts, setting board policy, reviewing best practices, seeking financing, or acquiring or protecting service territory, we can help you achieve your goals.
