Arkansas Electric Cooperative Corporation (AECC) supports the success of its 17 Member-Owners through reliable, affordable, and responsible services. To exceed its vision of being the best G&T and Statewide Cooperative in the United States, AECC created a detailed report with tangible steps and focus areas. The 8 strategic focus areas includes generation, transmission, rate structure/levels, communication, financial health, fiber/broadband, government affairs, and enterprise optimization.
The website needed to reinforce AECC’s core values: members, family, integrity, safety, employees, financial responsibility, and the seven cooperative principles. To achieve this, the primary goals for this website included: having an interactive design, the ability to provide detailed information, and humanized touches such as photos and videos.

Looking Toward the Future

The website design adapts to technological advancements of the future; further emphasizing AECC’s mission and vision toward the future.
