How Does Power Go From Generation To Distribution?

To understand how power is distributed to our members, think of electricity distribution like a river in reverse. It originates at a single ocean of power—a generation plant—and diverges from there into a series of transmission lines, substations, and smaller feeder lines until it reaches homes and businesses.

Whitewater Valley REMC is a distribution co-op — we do not generate our own electricity. Hoosier Energy, based in Bloomington, is our electric cooperative’s power supplier, along with 17 other southern Indiana and Illinois electric distribution cooperatives. Hoosier Energy's generation resources include coal, natural gas and renewables.
