Welcome To Gascosage Electric Cooperative
Gascosage Electric Cooperative is a non-profit electric utility owned by the consumer-members who use the electricity and other services it provides. Headquartered in Dixon, Missouri, the cooperative serves the counties of Camden, Maries, Miller, Phelps and Pulaski. We currently serve more than 10,000 homes, farms, businesses and industries in this area with more than 1,500 miles of electric power lines.
Thank you for your patience and understanding throughout the winter storm! Due in part to member efforts to conserve electricity, your electric cooperative system was able to navigate through several record-setting days without the need for controlled service interruptions (or rolling blackouts). We are pleased to share that Associated Electric Cooperative and Sho-Me Power Electric Cooperative, our power suppliers, have now lifted the request to conserve electricity.
While we hope these or similar circumstances are not repeated, we are grateful our co-op members are willing to work with us for the best possible outcome during challenging times. Your efforts made a difference!
Although we are no longer urging electric conservation for system reliability, you may want to voluntarily continue conservation and energy efficiency measures to help reduce the extreme weather impacts on your upcoming electric bills.

Exciting news for members of Gascosage Electric Cooperative! Gascosage was awarded $7 Million Loan/$7 Million Grant through the USDA ReConnect program!
As of February 17, 2021 the ReConnect Fiber Project is still delayed pending environmental approval.
As of February 17, 2021 the MO Tick Creek Fiber Project status is backbone fiber installed and ready for splicing, staging network equipment and preparing test sites.
We have received several questions from members, who are not included in our initial fiber buildout, of when or if they will have the opportunity to receive broadband from the cooperative. Currently the USDA ReConnect program will only consider areas that are deemed unserved or underserved. This means those that do not have access to a minimum of 10/1 Mbps. Our recent award was based on three concentrated areas of our service territory identified within the USDA Eligible Service Area Map. This map is based on the government information of internet availability, speed tests and previous federal dollars awarded to any entity for that area. Rest assured that we are continuing to pursue both State and Federal funding in an effort to provide the broadband service that our members are requesting.
For those members who may have discovered that they are in a map area that will be served by Wisper Internet, we have been provided a link by Wisper that allows for you to add yourself to their email newsletter where Wisper will release regular updates on their CAF II process. https://mailchi.mp/wisperisp/news
