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 130,000 members in portions of Anoka, Chisago, Hennepin, Isanti, 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 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.
Connexus Energy serves our membership by providing cost competitive, reliable electricity and related services, with an environment commitment, affirming the value of member cooperative ownership.
Accountability – Accountability and integrity are fundamental to our business.
Fiscal Responsibility – Individually and collectively, we act with fiscal responsibility.
Teamwork – Our best results are achieved through teamwork and collaboration.
Mutual Respect – Members and employees are treated with respect.
Open & Honest – Open and honest exchange of ideas is encouraged.
Safety – We are committed to the safety of our employees and the public.
Service Ethic – We exist to serve and to be an advocate for our members.
