About Heartland REMC

Your Energy Cooperative

The aim of Heartland Rural Electric Membership Corporation is to make electric energy available to its members at the lowest cost consistent with sound economy and good management.

As a not-for-profit electric cooperative, our consumers are members - we are owned by those we serve. That sets us apart from investor-owned utilities who must answer to their stockholders. We, as a cooperative, are responsible first to our members.

At the end of each year and after all operating expenses have been paid, the remaining margins are allocated to each member based on the amount of energy purchased.

Our SERVICE Territory

Heartland REMC serves parts of nine counties – Wabash, Wells, Huntington, part of southwest Allen, and fringe areas of Miami, Kosciusko, Whitley, Grant, and Adams counties. Heartland REMC is locally owned and locally governed by its members in these communities.


Heartland REMC started out as 3 separate distribution cooperatives in 1936; Huntington County REMC, Wabash County REMC, and Wells County REMC.  In November 1964, Huntington County REMC consolidated with Wells County REMC and rebranded as United REMC.  50 years later, in 2014, United REMC and Wabash REMC consolidated to form Heartland REMC.
