About Connexus Energy

Based in Ramsey, Minnesota, Connexus Energy is Minnesota’s largest electric cooperative, providing electricity and related products to member residents and businesses. The Connexus Energy Board of Directors, elected by our membership, governs the electric cooperative. We serve more than 141,000+ members in portions of Anoka, Chisago, Hennepin, Isanti, Mille Lacs, Ramsey, Sherburne, and Washington counties.

What Makes Us Different?

Connexus Energy is different from investor-owned utilities in many ways:

  • Our members have a voice – and a vote. Members elect our Board of Directors in annual elections.
  • We put any profits or margins back into our cooperative for efficient operations and our Cash Back program.
  • We’re local. Our employees live and work alongside the members we serve.

Our Vision

Our vision is simple – Connexus Energy is your most powerful membership®. These four words focus on the most important component of our cooperative: our members. In a cooperative, everything we do is for the benefit of our membership. This vision provides daily inspiration to build powerful partnerships with our members.

Our Mission

Connexus Energy serves our membership by providing cost-competitive, reliable electricity and related services, with an environmental commitment, affirming the value of member cooperative ownership.
