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.


There was no designated main speaker for the December luncheon meeting of the Collinsville Chamber of Commerce. The 2012 slate of officers was approved by the general membership.

Several member businesses (including the luncheon sponsor) Collinsville Soil Program spoke briefly. One of the guests at the meeting was the wife of Ben Ostrander. Ben is currently serving in Afghanistan. Susan Babbitt relayed a story that Librarian Robin Busyhead had been surprised this week by the return of her son from Afghanistan. Ernie Davis indicated he has two sons currently serving in Afghanistan.

Tentative plans for a 2012 Shopping Incentive program for Chamber businesses were presented. The basic premise is $100 purchases (spread across as many chamber members as possible) will make the customer eligible for multiple $1000 cash drawings at various times during the year. Plenty of details remain to be defined by the chamber board and merchants.
