Electric cooperatives are the foundation of the rural electric network. Miles of distribution lines link member-consumers to low-cost, cooperative power. Unlike traditional utilities that serve dense population centers, rural electric cooperatives serve fewer members per mile of line, which could potentially increase the cost of service per member consumer.
Despite that disparity, your REMC provides greater added value and service than traditional utilities. That’s because our members own our business. We work to maximize value to you — the member-owner — while minimizing costs for the benefit of all.
