2017 annual report
"The utility industry operates in a constantly changing environment, and 2017 showed us once again how much can change in a short time. Of course, change can be a good thing, and the past year’s achievements show Associated Electric Cooperative manages change very well.
"However, as times change, it is valuable to step back, look up from the day’s work, evaluate and ask where we’re going. Are we on the right path? That is what we did in 2017 through our long-term strategic planning process.
"At the same time, Associated continued to focus on its core business strategies. In 2017 the cooperative's generating and transmission assets performed very well, helping Associated exceed its financial plan. Our board approved a cost-of-service plan for 2018 that left rates unchanged for our six owner G&Ts. Associated retained its top-notch bond ratings, added an Energy Risk Management Division, strengthened its compliance and safety programs and launched an economic development program to help member systems help their communities. It was a busy year, and I invite you to read more about it in this report to members and strategic partners."
-- Emery O Geisendorfer, president, AECI board of directors
