Our Mission

To provide our members with safe, reliable service at the lowest cost, while maintaining an environmentally responsible, accountable, and sustainable operation now and in the future.

As a not-for-profit electric cooperative, K.C. Electric is owned by the members that it serves. K.C. Electric's headquarters is located at 422 3rd Ave. in Hugo, Colorado; its operations center is located at 281 Main St. in Stratton, Colorado. Outpost offices are located in Cheyenne Wells and Flagler, Colorado. Office hours are Monday through Thursday, 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.

Many K.C. Electric employees are customers as well. We know the importance of electricity in our homes, farms, and businesses. Our goal is to bring you quality, affordable and reliable electrical power. We are proud to serve you and we take our responsibility very seriously.

Financial Help Available With Your Electric Bill

Energy Outreach Colorado has committed $ 50,000 to K.C. Electric Association to help our residential members with past due balances make the transition from a traditional account to a prepay account.  Some financial assistance is also available for existing prepay accounts that have a past due balance.

A K.C. Electric prepay account allows residential members to purchase energy before they use it.  When making a payment, members put a positive balance on their account and as they use electricity the balance goes down.  Prepay participants receive alerts when they have less than five days’ worth of electricity remaining.  Members can choose to add money to their prepay balance anytime through a variety of payment methods.

A prepay account allows members to customize their payments to their lifestyle and budget.  Some choose to make smaller more frequent payments, while others choose to put a large balance on their account.  Either way, it allow members to be in control of how much energy they use and their costs.

If the account balance goes below zero, power is automatically disconnected.  However, a member can have their power turned back on in minutes by making a payment anytime of the day.  Payments can be made 24/7 online via a computer or a smart phone.  Payments can also be made during normal business hours via phone or in person at either the Hugo or Stratton office.  Members on prepay are not subject to disconnect fees, reconnect fees, late fees or collection fees.  There are also no payment due dates or minimum payments associated with the program

For more information about prepay, click here, or contact the Hugo office at 1-800-700-3123.


No Lost Time Award

 Louden Hornung, Darren Fox and Paul Norris accept a safety award from Colorado Rural Electric Association signifying that K.C. Electric employees didn’t have any lost time accidents in 2014. K.C. employees worked more than 59,882 hours and drove more than 358,000 accident-free miles in 2014. This is an amazing task considering the extreme weather conditions, long hours and dangerous tasks they must complete on a daily basis to keep the lights on.
