"In operation for over 60 years,
STEC is a Generation and Transmission
Cooperative serving 8 member cooperatives of South Texas"
South Texas Electric Cooperative was formed in 1944 to provide wholesale electric
power to member cooperatives. Presently the South Texas Electric Cooperative serves
eight distribution cooperatives; Karnes, Wharton County, Victoria, Jackson, San
Patricio, Nueces, Magic Valley and Medina electric cooperatives. These cooperatives
provide service to over 170,000 members in 65 South Texas counties.
This year’s annual report cover features the Helena substation. The Helena substation
is a distribution substation built to serve Karnes Electric Cooperative’s new Eagle
Ford Shale load. As I reflect upon the challenge of the past year, it is clear that
STEC addressed each challenge and moved forward with success. Construction programs
for the Eagle Ford Shale boom are in place, the development of a new power resource
is in process, and a financial package to implement STEC’s growth is structured.
As always, the employees of STEC are leading the way with confidence and competence.
