Texas Co-op Power


Texas Co-op Power is like no other magazine in Texas. With a circulation to more than 1 million Texans – a larger circulation than Texas Highways and Texas Monthly – it’s not only the most widely read magazine in the Lone Star State, but it offers a unique perspective on rural and suburban Texas.

The magazine is published monthly by Texas Electric Cooperatives and members of United Cooperative Services receive a complimentary subscription as part of their membership.

With its roots firmly set in the proud electric co-op tradition and with its editorial eye on a fast-growing, rapidly changing state, Texas Co-op Power offers features on daily life in contemporary Texas, stories by some of the state’s best writers, electric utility information and tips on cooking, recreation, gardening and things to do/places to go around the state.


“Power Talk”

“Power Talk” is an award-winning newsletter that is dedicated to informing members about United’s annual work initiatives, and how those initiatives relate to state and national electric industry issues. In addition to a variety of feature stories that profile the rich diversity of United membership, the newsletter also provides timely articles that not only promote energy conservation, but also demonstrate solutions that members can deploy to save energy and costs. Nearly every issue includes a column from United CEO Cameron Smallwood.
