Texas Co-op Power: Bringing Texas Home Since 1944

In 1944, the first issue of Texas Co-op Power magazine rolled off the presses. The modest black-and-white monthly was created to help Texas electric cooperatives communicate with their co-op members.

Over the years, Texas Co-op Power has steadily grown and improved—with more pages, a glossy, full-color format and even more compelling stories—to better inform, educate and entertain members of the state’s electric co-ops.

Every month, more than 1.54 million co-op members find Texas Co-op Power in their homes, making it the largest-circulation publication in Texas. Readership surveys indicate that 78% of readers are considered “regular readers,” having read at least three of the last four issues. And, 94% of readers are “completely satisfied” with the magazine.
