WHAT'S AN ELECTRIC COOPERATIVE
An electric cooperative is a private, non-profit company whose purpose is to deliver electricity to its customers or members. As a cooperative, they are required to fulfill two requirements including reinvesting revenue into their service area communities through stable rates and infrastructure or returning it to members through patronage capital. Cooperatives are also required to operate using a model of democracy.Learn More
Why Become a Cooperative Member?
Making the decision to join your local electric cooperative rather than continue to rely on commercial electrical utilities is an advantageous one that begins benefiting members right away.
Members vote in board member elections, participate in policy making and influence the company in sharing their ideas and concerns. Members also receive revenues or margins in the form of capital credits.
