Sand Prairie, a service of Jo-Carroll Energy, shares the same vision that founded our company more than 70 years ago: to “enhance the quality of life for our members.”

Seventy-five plus years ago, farmers worked together to bring affordable, reliable electricity to their rural area to build their businesses and make a better life for themselves and their families.Today, we continue this principle by building our internet network and providing  access to rural communities—access that helps you connect with friends and family, build successful businesses and puts the world at your fingertips.

We are working to bring solutions to our members. Although high-speed internet options have become increasing available, much of rural America remains unserved or underserved. That's why Sand Prairie has undertaken a fiber-to-the-premise project, in the same spirit as cooperative founders to enhance the quality of life in our communities.

So, what makes Sand Prairie different?

Live, local support. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Our tech support is based right here in the Midwest, not a world away.

Cooperative membership.  With Sand Prairie, you're not just a subscriber. You’re a member. We’re here to listen and serve you. You have a voice. You have a vote. And, you have benefits such as our Co-op Connections card, which offers you discounts on prescription drugs and more when you “buy local” and support participating area businesses. As a business owner, we can also add you to that program and help you promote yourself through our resources.

We are a not-for profit. Our goal is to keep services affordable for our members.

We care, and we give back. Each year, Jo-Carroll Energy—and the employees of Jo-Carroll Energy through their own efforts—give to nonprofits in our communities. Volunteer time, financial donations, blood donation, supplies for area food pantries, scholarships for youth and youth organizations and event sponsorships.
