Welcome to Clarke Electric Cooperative
Safety Driven • Energy Smart • Community Invested. Clarke Electric Cooperative is a not-for-profit, member-owned electric cooperative utility located in Osceola, Iowa. Our cooperative serves 5,000 members in parts of eight counties and maintains 1,800 miles of line in south central Iowa. Formed in 1939, Clarke Electric Cooperative holds true to the original principles created by its founders. Today's board realizes success is not measured by the miles of line or the number of kilowatt-hours sold, but by the satisfaction of our member owners.
76 years later, Clarke Electric is still committed to providing member-owners with reliable electricity and top quality customer service.
