Seven Cooperative Principles
Cooperatives have been around since the 1800s! They are nothing new, but the principles might not be as widely known. Cooperatives are not just electric either.
They cross many industries including agriculture, finance, healthcare and grocery. Ever hear of Land O' Lakes, REI or Ace Hardware? Learn more about each of the cooperative principles we live by.
Being a member has its rewards! You will receive our monthly Outlet newsletter, which highlights co-op news, events, contests, recipes and more. In addition, members are eligible for capital credits and youth program opportunities. Mille Lacs Energy Cooperative also hosts and Annual Meeting every year where our members gather to hear the state of the cooperative, meet with our staff and other members and enjoy dinner with giveaways.
