Electric Commission



The Missouri Joint Municipal Electric Utility Commission (MJMEUC) is a municipal joint action energy agency formed under the Joint Municipal Utility Commission Act, Revised Statutes of Missouri, to obtain sufficient, economical electrical power supply, energy management, and transmission services for the benefit of member municipal utilities. MJMEUC provides full power purchase requirements to member utilities and arranges purchases for members in need of supplemental power. Each member is represented on the Board of Directors by city-appointed  director and alternate director with voting privileges. MJMEUC membership includes 70 municipal utilities in Missouri, 1 associate member in Missouri, and 4 advisory members in Arkansas.

MJMEUC may construct, operate and maintain jointly owned generation and transmission facilities for the benefit of members. The Commission has the authority to enter into contracts for power supply, transmission service, and other services necessary for the operation of an electric utility. Within MJMEUC there are two full-requirements power pools. In addition to power supply and transmission service, the MJMEUC provides numerous Power Services and Energy Resources to its members.
