About Us

2017 Guatemala Project
Thanks to Oklahoma's electric cooperatives, the village of Chiis in the department (state) of Alta Verapaz, northwest Guatemala, is fully electrified. Learn more >>

2016 Bolivia Project
OAEC's first project was made possible through a partnership between OAEC and the Association of Missouri Electric Cooperatives (AMEC). The project took place in northern Bolivia and brought electricity to two villages, El Torito & Dos de Junio. The local electric cooperative, Cooperativa Electrica Riberalta (CER), assisted volunteer linemen on the completion of this project. Click here to learn more.

Support Energy Trails!

How can YOU help bring lights to remote areas in developing countries? The Oklahoma Association of Electric Cooperatives formed a 501(c)3 not-for-profit foundation, the Oklahoma Energy Trails Foundation. All financial gifts targeted for this project are tax deductible. 

Clean Water for Guatemalan Villages

Give $35 to buy a water filter that lasts for two years to an underprivileged family in rural Guatemala. The purchase of these water filters will also aid the local economy as they are manufactured in Guatemala. Our goal is to buy 120 water filters and deliver one to each household that receives electricity.

Would you be a part of this mission by sponsoring a water filter for $35? Donate below!
