POWER SUPPLY & DISTRIBUTION
WCEC is a member distribution cooperative. We do not generate the power that flows through our lines. Our power supply is provided by South Texas Electric Cooperative (STEC), a generation and transmission cooperative that serves WCEC and seven other member distribution cooperatives in South Texas.
STEC's headquarters facility is located at the Sam Rayburn Power Plant Complex on the Guadalupe River just outside Nursery, Texas. Transmission line and substation service facilities are also located in Pearsall, Texas and Donna, Texas. Power provided by STEC to its members is generated from a variety of energy sources, including wind, lignite, natural gas (NG), diesel fuel, and hydroelectric. To find out more about STEC, visit www.stec.org.
WCEC's service territory extends through Colorado, Wharton, Jackson, and Matagorda counties. We serve primarily rural areas surrounding the communities of El Campo, Louise, Hillje, Plainview, Danevang, Taiton, Nada, Garwood, Crescent, Mackey, Clemville, and Midfield. Currently, WCEC maintains 1,270 miles of power lines and serves 4,126 members. For a detailed map of our service territory, click here.
