  • Battle River Power Coop is a not-for-profit cooperative. Members are the shareholders, service users, and controllers of the organization.
  • We employ 52 qualified people who directly serve the members to keep the power on, and provide services such as power restoration, new construction, vegetation management, loans, electrician services and utility billing.
  • We support community by coordinating vegetation management with the 13 Counties and Municipal Districts in our service area. Working together with municipalities accommodates a shared need for vegetation management in capital projects and line maintenance and makes efficient use of tax dollars.

  • Our members elect a board of directors at an Annual General Meeting. All directors are within our service area, and are Battle River Power Coop members.

  • We support community through free public safety training initiatives – EMS, Fire Departments, and Schools across 13 counties.
  • We support community through investing in our youth – awarding a total of $48,000 in member scholarships. We make available to our members 2 annual Alberta Community & Co-operative Association (ACCA) camp sponsorships to the leadership program at Goldeye Centre.
