Intermountain Rural Electric Association is a member-owned distribution cooperative that serves Colorado communities in a nearly 5,000-square-mile area east, south and west of Denver and west of Colorado Springs. Since 1938, our mission has been to provide reliable service at an affordable price.

The population in the communities we serve has exploded since then and we continue to grow as the number of members we serve increases.

IREA is headquartered in Sedalia, just a short drive from Denver and Colorado Springs — and in the heart of Colorado’s scenic Front Range. Along with offices in Strasburg, Conifer and Woodland Park, IREA employs 200 people who are dedicated to providing outstanding service to our members.


We offer competitive salaries and an extensive benefits package that includes health, vision, dental, long-term disability and life insurance. IREA offers an Association-paid retirement plan, as well as a 401(k) plan with a matching contribution. And because health matters to us all, IREA offers a wellness program. After meeting eligibility requirements, IREA provides paid vacation, personal leave, sick and funeral leave, as well as jury duty. What’s more, we recognize nine holidays — including your birthday.
