About TEC

TEC supports the goals of member cooperatives in Texas.

TEC was established in 1941 as a coalition of electric cooperatives formed to have greater bargaining leverage with power suppliers. Since its founding, TEC has advanced with the times to provide its members the services and products necessary to sustain a cooperative business in the 21st century.

Today, TEC’s members include 67 distribution and 9 generation and transmission cooperatives. The association is led by President/CEO Mike Williams and is headquartered in Austin, Texas.

The association’s long history is a testament to the effectiveness of the cooperative business model and the Seven Cooperative Principles that guide its purpose.
