Our Culture

We’ve worked hard to build a culture we’re proud of, a culture that values taking care of each other, collaborating on new ideas, and standing up for our rural community.

MEC employees gathering

MEC is a community within our community, a place where the work we do reflects our commitment to the communities we serve. We provide safe, reliable electricity. We keep homes warm and cozy when winter winds blow, and we give families the opportunity to stay connected with one another. Most of all, we care. We care about our customers and we care about each other. 

Our Guiding Principles

Our mission, vision and values serve as our compass to guide us through every decision we make.  First and foremost, our mission is to deliver first-in-class innovations and solutions where others won't. And we have a vision to create vibrant, relevant, sustainable rural communities because we believe geography shouldn't limit opportunity. 

Our Values

These traits are what we look for in our employees.

We Love to Have Fun

We have a fifth unwritten value at MEC: it's fun. Whether it’s giving back to the community or enjoying an employee event, we think it’s important to step out of the “everyday” and bond with one another.
