We are an active part of the communities we serve because they are the places we call home. The members we serve live, work and play in the lush rolling hills of northeastern Oklahoma.

Headquartered in Collinsville, Oklahoma, VVEC is a distribution electric cooperative. We provide electric service to residential, commercial and industrial consumers through more than 32,000 meters and more than 4,500 miles of electric line in portions of Nowata, Osage, Rogers, Tulsa and Washington counties.

Among the 26 electric cooperatives operating in Oklahoma, VVEC is the third largest based on the number of meters served by the co-op. Ninety-two employees cover the Cooperative’s more than 3,200-square mile service territory daily maintaining the electric system and providing consumer-oriented service.


Nadia Guevara of Owasso Community Resources spoke to the Collinsville Chamber of Commerce Thursday about the non-profit group she has worked with since 2008. She had worked with other organizations before then but still dealing with family issues. The Owasso organization was formed in 1994 and primarily serves families in need in Owasso and Collinsville. The current economic downturn has increased the numbers seeking assistance while reducing the resources available to help them.

Owasso Community Resources has also become a focal point for referring those with local needs to other local groups proving help (such as the Collinsville Ministerial Alliance and many other community/state agencies). The group receives some United Way funding and a bit of federal (FEMA) funding but still relies heavily on donations and fund raisers. They are holding a fun run/walk this weekend.

Two primary needs they attempt to address are emergency food assistance and utility cutoff assistance but their services are varied including help with counseling and job hunting skills as examples.
