Trico Electric Cooperative is a not-for-profit electric cooperative serving more than 48,000 Members in northwest Tucson, Marana, Corona de Tucson, Sahuarita, Mt. Lemmon, SaddleBrooke, Green Valley, Three Points and Arivaca.

We have been serving southern Arizona for more than 75 years – 365 days a year, 24 hours a day.

Trico was formed by farmers in Avra Valley seeking to bring electric power to their rural area. Trico is owned by the people it serves. Our Members come first, safety is our core, reliability is our responsibility and by working together, we will power the future.


With over 140 employees, we all work together to support our community, our members and our employees’ needs. Employees are proud to be part of the co-op family and believe strongly in our mission of delivering safe, affordable and reliable power to those we serve.

The safety and health of our employees is also very important to the coop. Trico provides health insurance with a lower employee percentage contribution than the national average, dental insurance at no cost, vision insurance, life and disability insurance, defined benefit (pension), and defined contribution (401k) with an employer match retirement plan. We’re committed to helping our employees find a healthy work/life balance by offering benefits including Paid Time Off, an Employee Assistance Program, and tuition reimbursement.

Trico has a robust wellness program including onsite fitness center, stretching room, Wellness Coach and massages.

We have activities throughout the year that recognize employees, while encouraging teamwork, camaraderie and communication between all departments. These include a Fall Feast, employee BBQ, food drives, service awards, Linemen’s Rodeo, and wellness and safety committees.

Our benefits and family atmosphere make our employees feel valued and secure. At Trico, you are not just a number or a face in the hall. Here, employees get to know each other and genuinely care about one another.
