Minnesota's Largest Electric Cooperative

Based in Ramsey, Minnesota, and Minnesota’s largest electric cooperative, Connexus Energy provides electricity and related products to member residents and businesses. Our Board of Directors, elected by our membership, governs the electric cooperative.

Connexus Energy serves more than 145,000 members in portions of Anoka, Chisago, Hennepin, Isanti, Mille Lacs, Ramsey, Sherburne, and Washington counties.

How we differ from an investor-owned utility

Investor-owned utilities, or IOUs, are privately-owned and regulated for-profit public utilities. Connexus Energy is a not-for-profit, member-owned, community-focused electric utility.

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.
