What is an electric co-op?
Three key phrases describe electric cooperatives...
Locally owned and operated
Electric cooperatives are owned by their members and focus on their members' needs and local priorities. They are an integral part of the communities they serve.
The cooperative business model guarantees every customer a voice in business decisions. Members know they can trust their cooperative, because it was created not to make profits, but simply to deliver electricity. Cooperatives offer stability, reliability, and better value.
Responsive to local needs
Though many large utility companies are closing local offices, electric cooperatives are located in the communities they serve, making them easily accessible and responsive to members' needs. They work hard to achieve a better quality of life for member-owners.
