Our mission is to enhance the quality of life of our members and support the communities we serve, by cooperatively providing reasonably priced energy with exceptional service.
Corn Belt Energy Corporation distributes electricity to over 36,000 households and businesses throughout 18 counties. As a not-for-profit energy cooperative, Corn Belt Energy is owned by the members it serves and is committed to providing reliable, affordable energy. Governed by 11 directors who are themselves residential members, Corn Belt also supports energy efficiency, education, and safety initiatives.


Paying your bill has never been easier!

Corn Belt Energy offers Autopay.  Members have the opportunity to have their monthly electric bill payment automatically deducted from their checking/savings account or a debit/credit card.

In addition, reduce your monthly paper usage and mailbox clutter by signing up for Paperless Billing.

BONUS! Receive a one time bill credit of $20 when you sign up for both.

GeoCents - Making Geothermal Affordable

Whether you are in the process of new construction, updating HVAC systems or just looking into geothermal as a heating and cooling alternative, Corn Belt Energy’s GeoCents program makes geothermal more affordable. Corn Belt Energy will pay to have the geothermal loops (the outside loops that go into your yard) installed at your home. In turn, you will pay a monthly fee to be able to utilize the loops.


Corn Belt Energy is owned by the members who use our services as a not-for-profit electric cooperative. When you pay your electric bill each month, you are building equity in your cooperative based on your usage, referred to as capital credits allocation. At the Board’s discretion and as the co-op’s financial condition allows, capital credits are periodically retired and returned to co-op member-owners.

During the 86th Annual Meeting, it was formally announced that Corn Belt Energy will return $10 million in Capital Credits in Summer 2024.
