Victory Electric is your local electric cooperative. We pride ourselves in the service we provide to our members. Purchasing electric power from Victory Electric gives you membership in the cooperative and as a member, you have a voting membership.
Victory Electric was chartered June 1, 1945, and the first lines were energized in August 1947. Our cooperative’s name comes from the recognition of the U.S. and Allied forces’ victory at the end of World War II.
In the early days, the cooperative served parts of nine counties with just over 300 miles of transmission and distribution line. Today, Victory Electric is headquartered in Dodge City in Ford County. We have more than 70 employees and provide service to more than 19,000 meters with more than 3,200 miles of transmission and distribution line in southwest Kansas. The majority of our service area is within the three counties of Ford, Gray and Hodgeman. The other counties partially served are Clark, Edwards, Finney, Haskell, Kiowa and Meade.
Victory Electric purchases electricity from two generation and transmission cooperatives (G&T’s): Sunflower Electric Power Corporation, based in Hays, Kansas, and Kansas Electric Power Cooperative of Topeka. Our energy comes from a variety of resources including wind, coal, natural gas, hydroelectric, and nuclear. We are committed to developing generation capabilities in an environmentally responsible manner, while ensuring a reliable energy supply at a reasonable cost.
