In 2004, Tlingit & Haida Regional Electric Authority was re-organized to an electric cooperative which is now known as Inside Passage Electric Cooperative, Inc. IPEC is a non-profit, independent electric utility owned by the members we serve. Electric cooperatives are democratically governed businesses, ensuring they are closely regulated by their consumers.
Members of electric cooperatives express higher than average levels of customer satisfaction since they put customers first because the consumers are the owners. In addition, co-ops are locally owned and operated which makes IPEC more responsive to our members since they are the owners and we are accountable to them.
IPEC is governed by a Board of Directors elected from the membership, which sets policies and procedures that are implemented by the cooperatives’ professional staff. Our Board is committed to providing quality, dependable and affordable electric service to our members since they live in the communities they represent.
IPEC customers in 2013 were Hoonah (463 services), Kake (300 services), Chilkat Valley (248 services), Angoon (236 services) and Klukwan (61 services) for a total of 1,308 customers.
IPEC will hold our 10th annual meeting in Hoonah on May 9, 2014 at the Salvation Army Church on Eagle Drive. Doors open at 3:00 p.m. with the meeting beginning at 4:00 p.m. Please join us to find out more what your electric cooperative has accomplished. We will also serve some delicious food and give away some wonderful door prizes including cash and gift cards! Don't forget to vote and mail in your ballot prior to the deadline of May 1st. We hope to see you there.
